Why does it keep popping up?
« on: September 23, 2020, 06:33:09 PM »
I have avast in silent mode and the only notification (that I can't remove) is the one telling me it's in silent mode.

When I'm playing a game, Avast keeps popping up and minimising the game for no reason at all. There is no alert, it's just the normal screen you get when you click on the icon in the bottom right.

How do I stop this happening? It's starting to get really annoying.

I have been having the same issue, was playing a game and Avast decided to be rude, and minimize my game and popup the Smart Scan window.. Had me scrambling to close the blasted window, so could get back into the game before what I was doing in game got messed up.. After I did a repair not sure if it fixed it, but I did turn off Silent mode option and so far it has been behaving.. So I am thinking that Silent mode is broken..

Well it seems that even after repairing and what not, the problem is still happening and it is getting to the point of being really infuriating..

It's an issue that's come up for a lot of people within the past day or so.
It's "harmless" as far as I can tell, just takes focus away from whatever you're doing at the time.
I'm guessing it's some behind-the-scenes patch Avast did that is causing this.

Avast, please fix this. I paid for premium security already. I don't need your pop-ups on my screen every 10 minutes - it makes me want to uninstall Avast and switch to Norton.

Seems like it's happening whenever Avast updates it's virus definitions.

 Harmless is good! Not, if you have your unversity courses online!  >:(

It's not silent mode for me, it's the entire main app popping up constantly. It's kind of driving me crazy.

I'm getting this notification popping up about every 10-15 minutes as well and I too have that Silent mode turned on ... could this be an issue with the Silent mode option failing? Going to need some new update to the Avast Premium Security app soon. It's very annoying having the notification screen pop up everytime when I don't need it to.

I don't know if this post might help ?
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=238251.msg1562016#msg1562016

I don't know if this might be a Notification related popup.

In which case check the Settings > General > Notifications area checked or unchecked.

I already have made sure my silent mode is selected as on.  BUT, pop up still happening.

Avast needs to fix this mess

I came here as I had the exact same issue.

I wondered if Avast detected something, but no, it just pops like this randomly, minimizing my game when I play.
