New Source of Spam
« on: November 08, 2023, 05:17:39 PM »
I've discovered a new source of spam - Avast itself!!!  Almost every day I open my internet - not Avast page - and find an Avast ad blocking most of the page. Sometimes it's for a new product but usually for a product I tried and decided not to purchase. I realize your function is not an anti-spam software but this is is crazy = your own privacy protector intruding on you every day. Pleeeaaaase stop this! Thank you      J. Roventini

Can you be a little more specific, a screenshot of the offending notice/pop-up, etc.

What Avast Product and version number are you using ?
