NO is not an option
« on: February 10, 2020, 03:15:46 PM »

I can't select No it just isn't something that I can select?

So the No isn't a button but an icon representing the first two letters of my first name.
Mystery solved but, I'd still like a way to turn of the notification for this computer.
I want to leave it with the Free version of Avast.

The X at the top left doesn't work?

Also, the "No" thing is bloody hilarious.

The X top left closes the window it doesn't stop the notification.

According to Avast!, Free versions cannot remove such popups. You can change the duration though.

See > https://blog.avast.com/2015/01/22/do-not-disturb-how-to-disable-sound-and-pop-up-notifications/

Quote
Occasionally, we offer our users other security products, but we understand if you don’t need to see the notifications anymore. Our customers who have a paid-for version of Avast, have an option to turn those off completely.

Once again, open the Avast user interface and go to Settings>General. Scroll down a bit, and you’ll find a heading called Popups. Expand that and you’ll see all kinds of options. You can discontinue seeing all popups, but you might miss a warning or alert, so we don’t suggest that. Instead, you can tweak the duration (how many seconds the popup appears) of the different types of popups. It’s all laid out for you, so you can adjust all you want.

Users of our free product have the option to change the duration of the popups.

I am but this is new computer and I installed the Free version on Avast on that computer.
I don't want to upgrade it and I want to be able to shut off the warning on my Omni protected systems
that I have a new computer that hasn't been upgraded.
I want to leave it with the Free version.

Going back to my original comment. I don't believe what you're asking for is possible on the Free version of Avast.

It's a question I've put to Avast. It's something only Avast can answer.
I'm sure I'm not the only Omni user who may be looking for a way to allow exceptions.
