Disable all the adware?
« on: May 17, 2020, 04:25:02 AM »
Is there anyway to disable all the annoying adware that constantly pops up in my notifications? I recently built a $1,500 computer and 1 day in I get a notification telling me that there's files slowing my computer down on a clean install of Windows. I'm getting notifications saying "use this product to track your kids". I just want good antivirus. I've used Avast free antivirus since 2012 and I'm really starting to lose my patience with the constant advertising on my computer. Is there anyway to disable this functionality?
