Disable AVG Firewall

Please Note: The steps in this article relate to the AVG Internet Security products. If the instructions below do not apply to your product, you may be using the newer AVG Internet Security - Unlimited.

If there is a problem with the Internet connection or with sending/receiving e-mails and you suspect that AVG Firewall could be the cause, or if there is another reason for deactivating AVG Firewall, follow these steps:

  • Open the AVG program.
  • Click the Firewall component.
  • Next to the Firewall Mode option, click Change.
  • Select Turn firewall protection off.
  • Click OK.

The AVG Firewall service is now switched off. To re-activate AVG Firewall, follow the steps above and select the Automatic mode (or Interactive mode if preferred).

Please note that when AVG Firewall is deactivated, your PC is vulnerable to attacks from the Internet. Your anti-virus protection is not affected by disabling AVG Firewall.
