Avast Premium behaving like annoying adware.
« on: June 26, 2022, 02:51:02 AM »
I paid money for Avast protection against viruses and adware, yet Avast itself is just as annoying, constantly popping up discounts and their annoying promotions a lot.  It's pissing me off.  Is there any way to turn off this annoying marketing BS?  It pops up during work, during games even.  It's annoying as hell.  I certainly am not incentivized to renew at all.  In fact, for this behavior alone, I'll be looking to a competitor that doesn't have a marketing department that doesn't understand the nature of their own product.

I have had enough
