How to disable Avast Antitrack?
« on: March 18, 2023, 12:51:11 AM »
Hello, I can't update my video card drivers through Geforce Experience nor can access my wireless router settings due to Avast Antitrack. I have looked at the settings and I don't see the options to turn it off completely, just the option is for the web browsers and still effects it, as I can't update the drivers unless I have to delete the Avast Antitrack which I don't to do that when there are new updates available. Thanks for any help.

You don't say what version of antitrack you are using, Free or Premium.

It is possible to have the Avast AntiTrack program, without having any Avast Antivirus installed.  That may be why it doesn't show the Avast AntiTrack as a function in the Avast Antivirus interface.

However, that said the 2nd link I gave gives the option to uninstall it - https://support.avast.com/en-gb/article/uninstall-antitrack/#pc - the first Gif image shows the steps required to uninstall.

Though you may not want to go that far so I did another search in the avast support area - https://support.avast.com/en-gb/articleSearch/?searched=disable%20avast%20antitrack#pc

I couldn't really see a way to temporarily disable it - https://support.avast.com/en-gb/article/troubleshoot-antitrack-web-access-speed/#pc

I just wonder if there isn't something in the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features > Avast AntiTrack that would allow disabling it temporarily.

Unfortunately my not using AntiTrack, I can't really be any practical help.

Thanks for your help. But none of that worked and the only way to disable it, is by deleting it and reinstall the antitrack again.
