Right click on the tray icon and select "disable for 10 min".

Disabling the antivirus in NOT a solution... Google Drive does NOT need the antivirus to be off...

He asked how do it. You could have answered him. Its a temporary disable. There are several times you need disable your antivirus. Such as installing a game. 99% of game manufacturers specifically tell customers to temporarily disable there antivirus so that it does not interfere with the installation. If Avast should not be disabled then why is there a disable feature built in like every av has.

As such?

Poor game developers. If they code badly their program they shouldn't give poor advice.

The disable option for sure is not for installing software...
