Looking to Surpress welcome to AVAST Sound/Popup
« on: July 09, 2015, 03:32:35 PM »
Is there anyway to supress the "Welcome to Avast" Sound and Popup on install?

We are using AVAST Enterprise (AEA) console on a domain network. The initial install sound plays when installer is pushed regardless of sound setting in policies and machine is in silent/gaming mode.

The Welcome to avast popup comes up every time a new users logs into a machine (this is an issue in lab environments where many different people use machines)

Thanks in advance.

The initial sound CANNOT be disabled. It looks like the simple client installs and then the customization settings are applied after rebooting or on the next sync with your Avast Server.

We ended up sending out a mass email to our district that explained that the sound would play as we deployed the software. There were only a couple of  "OMG MY COMPUTER IS YELLING AT ME" calls from people that didn't read their email.
