I need to perform a scan with sdfx. but i see it is important to disable the antivirus. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right.

Hello Victoria,

In order to stop AVAST resident protection, right click on the icon in the system tray and click on "Stop On-Access Protection". After a while, you will see a red X, or something similar, on the icon. Be sure NOT to go online while your AV is off. In order to restart the protection, right click on the icon again and click on "Resume (or Start) On-Access Protection."
