How to completely close AVG Antivirus 2011?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
AVG is interfering with one of my programs.
How do I close it completely? I know there is a way to temporarily disable it for a max of 15 min, but that is not enough time, so I would like to shut down completely.
Also, how do I add in an exception to allow all connections for a particular program?

I'm not familiar with the program since I use MSE (you should seriously consider switching to it) but are you able to just end it's process in the Task Manager?

Is MSE really superior than AVG? I've never used MSE. I assume it is free?
Yes, I try to end it in task manager, but there are some AVG related processes that would not end, it will say "permission denied".

Oh.. well just get MSE and yes, its free. I know you can disable MSE completely..

do a search for Security Essentials on this forum, there's lots of threads about it.

No it can't be disabled. You need to uninstall it. Click on my sig. The link for the uninstaller is there.

I'm curious as to exactly what program you're using that AVG interferes with, we use it here on 3 systems and have no issue, it even has a dormant feature that enables (or can be configured to enable) during gaming wink.gif

Your point? I have already gathered you're not a fan of AVG (and hardware firewalls) biggrin.gif

Ok, so it is only for full screen only. Sigh, my program is not a game, and thus that setting would not work at all.
Might end up removing AVG.
