Usually its right click on the AVG icon in the system tray (bottom right of your screen) and choose stop service or something similar.

Hi,

Right click on the AVG icon on your task bar,

Then click on Launch control center,

Then double click on Resident shield,

A small window will open,

If it has not already opened on Properties click on properties,

Untick Turn on AVG resident shield,

Click APPLY

Then you just put the tick back in Turn on AVG resident shield,

APPLY,
