Change Notification Sound
« on: June 24, 2023, 11:43:36 AM »
Hey Guys,
is it possible to change the Avast Notification Sound to a custom mp3 or other audio formats?
Best regards,
R.

A very long time ago that was possible, but is no longer supported.

As far as I'm aware that is correct, note that I'm an Avast user and not an Avast Team member.

The avast Self Defence module is likely to prevent such modifications.  Even if temporarily disabled I don't know if the underlying structure would support it.
