Hi Essexboy,

If you look in here again, I have additional feedback for you.

I have been landed with fixing the machines for relatives, friends and neighbours, although I don't claim to be a qualified IT expert.

I have now received five phone calls recently from Avast users asking about the annoying popup in Internet Explorer as detailed in my previous screenshot..
Over the phone, I instruct them simply to disable the Avast Online Security per Tools >> Manage add-ons - then reboot.
In all cases, doing so removes their rogue IE pop-ups.

I'm assuming that you may have passed this information on to your programmers because AOS is DEFINITELY the culprit.
Will Avast now be issuing a patch to fix this bug as it appears to have affected a significant number of users?

Regards, scrumdown.
