How do I disable components in AVG AntiVirus Free?


  • Where are the settings in AVG AntiVirus Free to disable Software Analyzer, Email Protection and Online Shield components?
  • AVG was updated and it seem that it moved the settings to disable it's email and web protection components.


  • AVG AntiVirus Free 17.2.3008


  1. The settings were moved to Menu>Components
  2. UPDATE: There is a way to uninstall the unimportant components which will prevent AVG from showing an "!" in the task bar and prevent it from looking red in the software. 
    By clicking on the component, you will have the option to uninstall it. 
  3. It should look like this when all the unimportant components are disabled. 
  4. The PC will need a restart and should look like this.
