Turning Protection ON/OFF

Is there a way to temporarily turn off virus scanner only, not the firewall?

Saad,

The On/Off button in AVG task bar icon will disable all AVG components. To disable individual components, please follow the steps provided by Balasubramanian S in his post.

Hello Saad,

I understand your concern.
Open AVG Internet Security interface, click on "Menu-->Settings-->Components".
You can turn off each components by sliding the green cursor to the left.
Feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.

What does AVG's taskbar button for "Protection is ON/OFF" do? Does this turn ON or OFF all of the components or just the virus scan module?
