How to Disable Outlook Plugins in AVG

Save

AVG installs an add-in for Microsoft Outlook that may be undesired by some users, but there are several ways to avoid or remove the plugin. If you are installing AVG for the first time, you can simply choose not to install the plugin. If you have already installed AVG, then you will have to manually disable the add-in from within Outlook, as the plugin cannot be accessed through AVG. The steps for disabling the add-in will be different depending on which version of Outlook you are using.

Installing AVG for the First Time

  • When prompted during the installation process, choose the Custom Install option and click "Next."

  • Underneath Component Selection, un-check the box for the Microsoft Outlook Add-in and click "Next."

  • Continue with the installation as normally.
