AVG Free 9.0 temporary switch-off?

To install Sibelius 6 you are strongly advised to switch off anti-virus.
How to do this with Windows 7 for AVG Free 9.0 please?

You open the control center. Double click the resident shield and then untick the option Turn on AVG Resident Shield Protection.When you're done re-activate once again.

Thanks for suggestion, alwinwinjoe and noyb, but it doesn't seem to apply to 9.0 Free.
Anyway I've used a method found in an AVG forum: after disconnecting internet, run msconfig and unclick AVG from Start-up list. Restart. After doing whatever (installing Sibelius 6 for me), reverse procedure, restart then reconnect. I see AVG say they will restore the disable function in the next version.

You could've just went to task manager and force quitted it. I also noticed that the disable function was gone since 8.5 =)
