  1. Thanks, I know; but I want to disable the antivirus software for 15 days or three months ! Any other solution - excepting deleting ?

  2. Nice blog and beautiful presentation. Thanks for sharing the information.

  3. Stop Avast Free v7.xxx to install a new program - Win XP - June 2012

    The above instructions did not work for me, when I tried to install a new program, but, the below instructions did.

    1. Download program, and store in a folder on desktop.

    2. Turn off internet connection. (so evil does not try to enter unprotected computer)

    3. Open Avast Free v7.xxx

    4. On left side of Avast window, select *Real-Time Shields*. On right side of (same) window will appear (upper right) *STOP* button. Click on it.

    5. A drop down menu (time) selection will appear. I personally selected *Stop until restart of computer*, affording me plenty of time.

    6. From desktop, open folder with program, and install as per directed.

    7. When finished, restart computer. New program will be installed, and Avast will be running as usual.
