I am using Avast AV Pro and I am fed up with reminders in effect telling me what I have not bought yet!
I bought what I want/need. It is my choice!
Enough already

Have you unchecked the AvastUI > Settings > General > Popups - 'Show popup offers for other Avast products' ?

That is unchecked but I still get the pop up, located from the sys tray.
Not often, I will admit.
However I include the stuff (main GUI) that I do not want.
I 'see' Privacy (for instance) and when Avast has a change to another product there is a notification.
When Avast has a new version the sys tray icon notifies so I have a look and lo and behold also included is 'New, New & New.

@bob3160
Thank you, very kind of you.

I have had this thingy (tech talk) for a while now.
Sept 19th '17 "How to stop pop-ups on AV Pro"

Have tried all the usual
Perhaps it's my old Vista (2008), I can't expect Avast or any one else to support all the old OS's

Sorry that wasn't of any help in this.

Since you mentioned privacy - AvastUI > Settings > General > Privacy - have you unchecked both of those options ?

I unchecked Participate in data sharing but I still have the Participate in the Avast community, I wonder if unchecking that would have any impact in this regard.

Thank you, I did not know of your posts - sorry.
I have unchecked the last box now (Avast Community) and will wait for the next Avast program version update and see.
There do seem to be a lot of them (Program updates) almost streaming ;)
