    Well, i dont think there is any such option in AVG preferences.

    Why dont you just disable the Control Center? I guess thats the only way...

    PS: Why would you want to disable auto-scan, especially of Ms-office files??

    rerun the installation file.
    select add/remove components
    and go on clicking next

    and uncheck the check box which says office plugin for office 2000 and office XP
