How to kill Avast upgrade popups?
« on: January 04, 2018, 10:42:38 AM »
Every hour or so Avast brings up a popup trying to get me to buy Avast Internet Security, which I don't want. Is there a way to kill those popups? The currency is in British Pounds and I use Euros since I live in the Netherlands so I'm not gonna do that. But aisde from that, I'm not interested in buying it. Does anyone know how to kill those popups?

- Which version..?
- OS..? (32/64 Bit..? - which SP/Build..?)

- OS..? Windows 10 64-bit v1709 (build 16299.125)

Maybe every hour or so is a bit exagerrated but the big popups do annoy me.
