How can I quickly disable McAfee Total Protection 2009

I have McAfee Total Protection 2009 and I thought you could quickly disable the product when installing new software etc with one simple click. Is there such a mechanism. I get very confused when I have to go in and try to figure out the right thing to turn off. I would rather end the whole thing then go back in and check 15 boxes. Is this possible. Thank you for looking.

Close enough. prince2002 I gave you points for effort and followup. Actually McAfee Total Protection 2009 does not have that feature to right click and disable. Unfortunately I wish it did.
younghv - that does turn off the Anti-virus but does not turn off all the Total Protection 2009 systems. I was wondering if there was one switch for all.
warturtle - I just find it safer to switch everything off in order to install something. I have noticed sometimes McAfee does not always prompt me to allow certain actions maybe you have not seen that but I have. I used to use Total Protection Adavnced For Small Business and it gave me a place to allow or block this CD version does not seem to have that. Are you referring to the online version I am referring to the new Total Protection 2009 3 license CD you can get at Office Depot?

Consequently no one really answered the question but it is close enough to cause me to assume there is no way to do this with one switch off.
