I paid for Avast Pro for a year specifically for the sandbox mode but only used it a few times.  My Pro has expired and I'd prefer to just stick with the free version.

1) It says I am unprotected from the task tray hover balloon/tool-tip.  I surely hope this is not the case.  If so, it seems like really poor judgement to not at least revert to the free "protected" version of Avast.  Why put a customer that has done cash business with you in a worse position than a free user who hasn't ever paid you anything?

2) How do I stop the annoying pop-up reminders to upgrade and simply revert my install to the free version?

To me the simplest thing would be to uninstall your current version and then install fresh the free version . . . .
Windows 10 (64bit); 8GB RAM; Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro; avast Free (latest version)
