Could someone please tell me how to do this if you have Avast?

Thanks

JRT should still run with AVAST not disabled.  However, the instructions are as follows and illustrated at How to Disable (Turn Off, Stop) Avast Antivirus 2016:

 --   Right click on the Avast icon in the system tray
 --   Scroll up to Avast! shields control
 --   Select the desired option from the list

    10 minutes,
    1 hour,
    until the computer is restarted or
    permanently.

I suggest "until the computer is restarted".  Then, make sure you restart the computer before going back online.


Reverse to enable.

I have  a question I wondered about when getting ready to run the programs that ask for security programs to be turned off.

Would it be better to just disconnect the cable to the internet?   I'm always apprehensive about turning off the anti-virus protection to run a program.  So if that is an unfounded fear, I'd like to know that too.

Yes, it would, especially if the computer is infected.  That way, more files can't be downloaded.

Thanks.  I'll just disconnect from the internet in  the future then.

I think it would be good to amend instructions to include that option.

I know it would have saved me a lot of trepidation.
