Hi!

How do I temporarily turn off McAfee Antivirus protection and turn it on again for printer software installation. 
 
I'm using a Compaq Presario computer with "Windows vista home premium".
 
The printer is a Lexmark three in one, X 1270.
 
Can anyone help me out to solve my problem on an urgent basis?
 
Thanks!
