Hey,

@loungehake
If you prefer to have next to no nags, right-click the Tray icon and choose Silent Mode. It used to be the Gaming Mode so it wouldn't popup during playing. It won't annoy you much after that, but it won't advise you about program updates either... you'll have to remember to check thing once in a while.

The Gaming Mode is why I use Avast.

Also, when installing Avast, I click "Customize" and uncheck all the useless stuff and keep only the File and Web shields. With less stuff running, I might be mistaking here, but I think it also pops up a lot less.

As for the region or city discrepancy, I understand that Wigan is quite far from Dagenham... the other end of the place,  it usually relates to how your ISP, or its own provider(s) is(are) set up. For me, in Quebec, it shows the one city over. I wouldn't bother about it.

What you have to bother about is the No Life and Brain Sucked Avast Disciples. They have nothing to do except to sit in front of their screens, wait for messages and see which one of then can beat the other at answering first. You can spot them quite easily, they're the one with forty, sixty... eighty thousand posts! No life I tell you. What's funniest, is on this 15 posts thread, there's only 5 posts from users and 10 from the Lifeless... just talking to themselves and supplying no solution to your issue.

Shut the popups by setting the thing to Silent Mode.

NOW HEAR THIS !
I don't want any Free Loading Avast Evangelists, with 40-80 thousand posts, to answer on anything here as none of you actually work for Avast Software S.R.O... and seriously, who wants an answer from lifeless zombies that know nothing and have no power to have anything changed... you can only forward issues.
On the other hand, I welcome posts from normal users that do have possible solutions.

Silent mode may be an answer for you but certainly not for everyone. Silent mode also silences messages you may want to know about.
