How do I Uninstall AVG without uninstalling?

Answered by Cody Janus

To uninstall AVG without completely removing it from your system, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the AVG user interface by double-clicking on the AVG icon in the System Tray or by searching for AVG in the Start menu and selecting the appropriate program.

2. Once the AVG interface is open, click on the menu button (usually represented by three horizontal lines) in the top-right corner of the window.

3. From the drop-down menu, select “Settings” to access the AVG settings.

4. In the Settings window, click on the “Components” tab on the left-hand side.

5. In the Components tab, you will see a list of various components that AVG offers, such as Antivirus, Firewall, and Web Shield. Locate the component you wish to uninstall temporarily.

6. Click on the component you want to uninstall, and you will see a toggle button next to it.

7. Toggle the button to the “Off” position. This will disable the selected component temporarily without completely uninstalling it from your system.

8. If you want to disable multiple components, repeat steps 6 and 7 for each component you wish to uninstall temporarily.

By following these steps, you can effectively disable specific components of AVG without the need to completely uninstall the entire program. This can be useful if you only want to disable certain features temporarily or troubleshoot issues related to specific components.

It’s important to note that disabling components of your antivirus software will leave your system vulnerable to threats. So, it is recommended to only disable components temporarily and re-enable them as soon as possible.

Remember, AVG provides essential protection for your computer, so it’s always advisable to have some form of antivirus software installed and active on your system.
