In your face advertising (annoyance due to repetition) is not the answer, and represents old-school, short sighted thinking.
Not to those committed to chasing a dollar.

I stand by my description, but that's not to say you're not right, or that the technique doesn't work.
Perhaps to novices and non-tech's it may be more effective.  The rest either ignore the ads or
use silent mode.

Has Avast reduced of showing these pop-ups, since have not seen them for a while or not that often? I mean it's a good thing if they have.

Maybe they are just too busy getting Avast 2016 ready ??? I've also noticed a quieter time. Let's let the sleeping giant lie. :)

There has certainly been 'less outraged users' posting lately.
