Avast surveys always popping up.
« on: August 08, 2014, 10:39:20 PM »
Every day about 3 or 4 times a day i keep getting pop ups to take this or that survey and frankly I'm getting sick of it. Asking about personal stuff about if i ever cheated on my wife or partner. Is there any way to turn it off? I'm really tempted to uninstall and go with a different antivirus if this can't be turned off. Or if you have to take one and turn it off. I'm not getting paid to take them nor am i going to get a free full version of avast to take them so what is the point other then making a data base of users personal information. It was bad enough you got my email address cause you force people to register to continue using the free version. You all are just as bad as google and crapple.

You can disable update info in avast! > Settings > Update > Details > Show notification box after automatic updates.
You can also opt to Game Mode and remove all avast! sounds and messages.

Those surveys are piggy-backed with the vps update pop-ups.
Do as Tech advised by turning off the update pop-ups.
Don't worry you will still receive the vps updates, you just
won't see the pop-ups.  :)
