Detection rate tests are nonsense in my opinion...see here:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=127472.msg953929#msg953929

now compare avast with avira...rather avira has big pop ads,buggy UI etc..and avast only small ads included in update pop up.

C;mon,does it take that much time to click X.  ::)

Avira doesnt have a big popup lol...catch up!

Avira much better at detecting viruses and has far less 'false positives' than Avast - wow RWT tests 500 malicious URL's... there are millions!!...

The same applies with on-demand test...only tested against 100's and so on but there are millions ::) and besides this organization has bigger sample set:

and so you are wrong...avira is way behind in terms of detection even against bigger sample set,anything else sir? ::)

This thread has gone way past off topic. The most simple and obvious action a user should do is to limit the duration of the pop-up.
It ain't that difficult. As far as adverts go, avast does "not" come pre-loaded when you purchase a computer. The only advertising
avast gets is either by word-of-mouth or via a small pop-up. With this in mind, doesn't avast have a right to make a profit.
After all I'm quite sure the employees enjoy getting a paycheck.  8)

To limit duration of pop-ups see... 8)
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

agree with davidr
is this thread about adverts or popups???
are you objecting to a tiny tag at the bottom of an update notification?
can you turn update notifications off?
you get popups and adverts with comodo firewall also
(but it seems to play well with avast)

What utter rubbish.
There are no pop ups or adverts with comodo firewall.

I think you do get pop ups if 'Comodo message center' is ticked. But I have it unticked so I don't see any.
