My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit, and sometimes when I want to install a new utility it looks the anti virus programs that i have, Avast and Malwarebytes are very diligent.  Is there a way to suspend all anti virus programs and also possibly the firewall until the program installation is completed.  Thank u for your suggestions.

If you run both those apps be sure that only one is doing on-access scanning  (preferably MBAM).

You really shouldn't need to worry about anything like that. I've never had any problems installing any software with my AV tool and firewall running. If you get such issues it is likely that your you are trying to install actually is malware, and then I would certainly not try installing it by disabling my AV etc.

But you can just open your AV tool and stop it running from within it's control panel, at least I haven't seen any AV tool where you can't do that...

This looks like a story, but it's very easy to do. I explain how to Disable Avast, Malwarebytes and Firewalls like you've asked....

On the bottom right of your start bar, RIGHT-click the Orange Avast button. Go up to Avast Shields Control and hover over it. Choose "Disable until computer is restarted" or "Disable permanently". I usually do the latter and then when I'm done, I just go back to this screen and "Enable All".

So that's how you turn off Avast. As for Malwarebytes, it's basically the same thing: Go the M on the bottom right of your screen, please right-click on it then un-check "Enable Protection" and then it should prompt you if you want to disable it... click Yes and then it will be turned off until you restart or re-check it.


As for Firewall Settings, click Start Button on bottom left. Start typing in "firewall". The icon should be highlighted "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security". Click that. In the middle of that window it will say "Windows Firewall Properties". Click that little blue text link.

Starting with Domain Profile Tab in that little window, Click on the right "Firewall State" it will say "On(recommended). Click that box and choose off. Once you do, go to top tabs and go to each Tab, Private, and then Public. Now that all are off, click "Apply" button at bottom of window. NOW ALL THE FIREWALLS ARE TURNED OFF.

After you do all these steps, go ahead and try to install whatever it is you want. When you're done, make sure you go back and enable them all again, doing each step in reverse. Should be fairly self-explanatory but come back here if you need my help. Good luck!
