Really getting pissed off with Avast now.
« on: January 28, 2022, 10:11:04 PM »
Due to financial reasons, I have had to cancel my subscription.

Ever since, I have had Avast CONSTANTLY popping up in games, when Im browsing web pages and other times telling me that my subscription will expire in xx days. Every few hours it will pop up AGAIN to tell me. Getting to the stage of thinking of uninstalling it completely now and looking for another free AV to use.

I wouldn't mind if it popped up when there's nothing going on, but this is getting really annoying. Even though al my games, Email program (Thunderbird) and Firefox as well are on the "Do not disturb" list.

I f***ing know it's going to expire, I don't need to be told every few hours!

Silent mode IS on and has been since forever since I don't want it interrupting games, expecially online games where you can't just hit pause.

I have actually had it pop up 10 seconds ago DURING a game to tell me silent mode is on.
Firefox is also on my Do Not Disturb list so I can watch full screen movies without being disturbed and it STILL pops up over it.
