Your continued personal attacks however can wind up with you being banned from this forum.
I would suggest that you stop your constant attack against certain Forum members.

Wow, another novel.

bob3160, please stop your attacks on others.  Thank you.

Unless a evil alien has taken over Bob's body and mind, he is not attacking anyone.

The mocking tone was unnecessary.

No it wasn't.

So is there any way to get rid of these intrusive pop-ups or not?

I have been using avast for more than seven years and each time one of these pop-ups comes up I consider abandoning Avast more and more.

The only way to get rid of them in the Free version is to select Silent/Gaming Mode in General Settings.  The problem with that is you will not get important alerts about malware or virus infections/attempts.

2. By all accounts this isn't totally correct virus alerts would take precedence over silent mode.

However there are some interactive windows such as, if you have hardened mode (Aggressive) enabled you don't see the interactive window when you launch a program. The program just won't launch, that is essentially your only indication there is something going on under silent mode.

At that point disable silent mode and launch the program and you should see the Hardened Mode interactive window.

That seems like a lot more work and more time consuming than just clicking the X to close the pop up box.
To each their own.  :)

All kinds of issues are discussed among (Uber)Evangelists and with Avast!, but that is not vissiable for other forum users.

That's new to me. Does it mean that Evangelists have a special function here? I thought it's a kind of nickname like Newbie or Jr. Member.

Some of the forum restrictions mentioned in that post changed with the restart of this forum.

To inform you :

In the old days you became an Evangelist when you had reached 500 posts. For a short time it was 600 and 700 ( or 750 ) posts, because some members were only posting to become an Evangelist. That was ( also ) a reason Avast! changed the Evangelist status into something that has to be granted to you by them. The Evangelists who already had that status that time, kept it. And Avast! introduced the Überevangelist status which also has to be granted to you. The Überevangelists have some limited moderation rights.

Greetz, Red.

Thanks for the information.

Curious game to climb a ladder that doesn't lead to anything real ...

There isn't any ladder to climb. Those of us who volunteer our time to help those with less knowledge,
do so because we enjoy helping others. Since we aren't looking for anything, nothing needs to be offered. :)
Helping someone in need also brings it's own rewards. :)
