Thank you so much! And so it did! Mode is enabled without notice (as is constantly opening window is very annoying).

It happens for me, only when I click on a webpages in my browser.

Now, I understand that Avast is trying to intercept viruses etc. when I visit webpages, but the fact that the Avast Account window pops up, suggests that Avast is trying to link that activity to my Account.

If this is the case and I suspect it is, I am extremely angry and disappointed.

Avast, you may have been rumbled here. If you are, please stop tracking my web activity, immediately!!

Avast, the point I allude to here is very important. Please can you give me an answer and/or clarify your position?

From what I understand the account server that Avast talks to as gone down. Every other virus protection should still be working(?)

For people bothered about the pop up, just minimize it, or leave it on the desktop and put your other programs over it.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon, as yea it is mildly annoying keep having it pop-up.

my.avast.com is currently down which may cause these popups since Avast tries to update your Avast account :)

Agreed, but why is Avast trying to update our Avast accounts, at such regular intervals?

It updates which shields are enabled/disabled and some other data like Karma points, last connection, Virus database version, the license etc.
