Right click the 'a' orange icon.
avast! shields control.
Choose a time to disable the protection.

I right clicked on the "A" in the taskbar and chose close indefinitely.  When I tried to run Combo-Fix it said there was still an Avast scanner running in the background.  Should I just un-install Avast and then do the Combo-Fix?  Thanks in advance.

No. Maybe it is detecting the drivers loaded. If you disable all the shields, the protection is gone.
Does Windows Security Center (Action Center) alert you don't have antivirus protection?
I think it's safe to run ComboFix in this situation.

Yes the Windows Security Center does come up and tell me that I do not have AV on.  Ok so cool.  I will run Combo-Fix now. Better to be safe than sorry. Thanks!
