Disabling AVG

I have free AVG 8.0.138 (and have no complaints about it). But to run
another (unrelated) program I've been advised to disable it.
I can't see any way to do that - other than removing it completely and then
reinstalling.
Have I missed something?
Any advice warmly appreciated.

What is this other "...(unrelated) program..." ?
This may be a generic warning with no merit.

An outlook recovery program (my outlook.pst having exceeding the permitted
size - not that I knew there *was* a maximum size until too late ...). It's
not recovering my Tasks, and the program suppliers' first suggestion (in a
list of three) is <Disable your antivirus, it can block access to the
Outlook data for our program.>

If you are talking abot MS Outlook from the MS Office package and PST files,
yes, on older
stype PST files there is a 2GB file size limitation.  MS Office Outlook 2003 and
above
version PST files don't suffer from this limitation.

In this case it it won't block access to the PST but, if it scans within a PST
file you
may be hindered by a slow down.  If we are talking about PST files, you may
choose to add
*.PST as an exclusion to AVG (if it has that capability).

OK - Yes, I have MS Outlook 2000. If it's merely slowing the process down
that needn't worry me so I'll skip item 1 of their list.
My AVG - perhaps because it's the freebie - doesn't have the exclusion
capability.
Thanks very much for your help.

If you do not need the network/internet connection for what you have
to do, disconnect it first.

here is a page on how to disable firewalls. This is a critically important
function especially in troubleshooting. I don't know why AVG is not on this
list. I have always wondered how to disable AVG AV  and never have found an
answer to this either.

I presume you've now spotted Russell Patterson's contribution to this
