Advertisements - You Must Stop Them
« on: April 04, 2023, 09:31:08 AM »

I pay for Avast Premium Antivirus. I'm pretty happy with it.
Except I'm getting tired of it running scans only to tell me there is a "problem" so it can sell me "anti-track" or cleanup, or driver updaters.... and I get frequent popups with offers for these.

That's fair for a free software package. Now that I'm a long standing paying customer, these escalating marketing tactics are making me really angry.

You should either stop the adds (preferred), or give me the products for free at this point to make amends (because you probably have no other way to stop the ads.

Open the User Interface > Menu > Settings > Personal Privacy
Unselect all but Share suspicious file samples.

It will not stop everything but will greatly reduce the popups.
