    In the past, I used to run a seperate firewall and antivirus. This allowed me to close the running application of the antivirus when I needed to install a new program. Now I am running an Internet Security Suite where the firewall and antivirus are integrated, so when I close that off, I am exposed to the internet without protection.

    My question is...I run cable internet and, short of pulling out the cable or going the tedious process of disabling my internet connection. is there any program or utility out there that would allow me to to that in one click. That way when I do close down my Internet Security Suite, I no longer have to worry or rush to get through the process.

    You could do that but honestly, I cannot remember the last time I disabled an antivirus program to install any software either.
