That sounds like one situation where it happens, but I switched all updates to manual and while the updates did stop happening, the random program appearance continues. So I don't think the cause can be narrowed down solely to an update to the virus defs.
Ah. Too bad it wasn't something simple to fix.
Was hoping it was just the updates and that would definitely help narrow down a fix. :\

Every 3 hours avast popups. What the heck kind of spam is this for PAID software??
I'm very close to canceling my subscription and find another AV software if this continues. It's effing SPAM!
