Tamporarily disabling AVG protection

Chris Mullins

To do the above, follow these steps:


  1. Press Windows+b to move to the system tray.

2Press enter on the Notifications chevron button.

3 Use arrow keys to scroll the overflow notifications list until you locate the AVG anti-virus button.

4 Press NVDA+numpad 8 to move mouse focus to the AVG button

5 Press Numpad 8 to activate the AVG context menu (Note: i can’t get the Applications key to invoke the AVG context menu, hence the 2 step process)

6. ‘Temporarily disable AVG protection’ appears in the Context menu list.


When you activate the disable option, a dialog appears with various warnings about removeing protection and instructions about re-enabling it.  You can also set a timer to automatically re-enable protection after a certain time has elapsed.
