I need to disable all triggers temporarily on a SQL Server DB (2008) so I can run some insert scripts against it.   How can I do this with one statement?   I don't really feel like going through each individual trigger on 65 tables and disabling them.  Also, I need to know how to re-enable them when the scripts are done.   Thanks.
