Community participation and pop-ups
« on: October 10, 2016, 01:39:54 PM »
Like other users, I've been happy that Avast Free - for many months - hasn't served me with pop up ads. Then this morning, I decided, having read that it's necessary for Cyber Capture, to enable 'Participate in the Avast Community' ... within half an hour I'd received a pop-up invitation to upgrade, possible a coincidence but probably not. I accept that Avast needs to advertise within its free product but, given the choice, would rather not have them so I've turned the 'participation' option off again.

it's not related this setting to the popup. Just coincidence.
