Thanks very much for letting me loose the game.
« on: October 23, 2019, 06:00:07 PM »
While playing a game online and raking in points, Avast decided to pop up and tel me that my license is over in 4 days. This was a free trail license and all I wanted was the free version because that is enough for me. Nou I've lost the progress I made in the game for something I do NOT want anyway.

Also, why is there no option to shut Avast up about that license? While doing work on my system the sodding thing pops up. Not happy about this.
Avast is a great antivirus tool, light on the resources, but this intrusion needs to stop. IF I'd like to buy a license or renew one, I make that choice myself.

Avast! has game mode?

As for the game, it's just a game. You'll live, this isn't the end of the world.
