How to turn AVG off?

  Baz48 23:19 22 Aug 2008

I am running AVG Free Version 8.0.138. Can anyone tell me how to: 1, Turn off the anti-virus section. 2, Stop the prog from scanning a particular program.

It appears (from reliable sources) that it is registering a false positive.

Right-click on AVG icon and then click on Open User Interface, you will then have access to all the components.

PS - best to go off-line first! Then turn it back on before going back on-line.

Yes I can get access to all the components but don't see how to turn them off i.e. make inactive.

The only options, right clicking the Anti Virus component. are "open" and "ignore component state". Neither of these switches off the component.
