I just received the following question:


"Is there a way to shut off all the notifications that Avast returns, such as every time it updates the virus definitions?
I am running the free version. All these pop-ups do get a bit annoying."

Hopefully the following Video answers that question:

Adding the avast! WebRep extension to Google Chrome v21.xxx




(The WebRep extension add-on can now be done directly from within the avast! User Interface. :) )

You can use this same trick to add other extensions to Chrome
which aren't available through Google Play.

This video is also applicable to the official release of Windows 8.
I know, I just used it to set up my first backup for Windows 8 Pro.

In case any one is interested, the programs I use to produce these videos are:


1. Screencast-O-matic to record the actual tutorial and,


2. Free Video Converter to edit the original recording and then convert and upload the finished product.


I'm aware that there are many programs available that would probably have the capability of doing a fancier way to do the recording.
There are also many programs available that are better at editing audio and video.
What I haven't found are a combination of programs that are easier to use and are also FREE.


If a picture is worth 1000 words, how many words is a video worth ???
