"Update Information" pop-up note ON/OFF
« on: April 15, 2004, 03:38:35 PM »
Is there some way to stop the 'update information' note to pop-up? The blue one that says "Virus database has been updated" (or something like that.) I got rid of the voice saying it but I'd like to Avast to automatically update but keep it to himself instead of informing me.

I assume I have just missed the option to turn this off. I have the free Home version so I guess this could be some annoyance thing to get people to buy Pro.

I tried to search the forums but didn't really find anything relating to this ...it was kinda lazy search though so sorry if this has been discussed before.

Thanks

Open the Avast ini file and look for the following:

SuppressUpdatedInfo   1   Suppress the small blue info window in the notification area of your desktop on updating; Show it = 0

Ah, thanks. If I had known it had something to do with .ini file I guess I could have just read the ".ini file" post, oh well.

Thanks a lot, I'll wait and see if this worked.

After all, if you need more information about the avast4.ini file, take a look here:

I certainly don't have anything against the thread, I'm just a little worried that we end up with 2 pages of sticky topics one day  ;D
