How do I turn off Avast's pop-ups?
« on: November 29, 2009, 01:50:13 PM »
I'm really tired of it popping up the blue box from the system tray every time it updates. Even more annoying is the computer voice saying "The virus database has been updated." I love Avast, but I hate this "feature." Isn't there any way to turn it off? I looked through the settings but couldn't find it.

Thanks!

Hi Banzai77, welcome to the forum :)

Yep, there is a way...

Right click avast! tray icon --> program settings --> 'update (basic)' tab --> details --> Uncheck 'show sliding box after automatic update'

I am not sure if this disables the voice section of it though.

What you can do, if the sound is still there:

program settings --> 'sounds' tab --> click settings -->  scroll to avast! antivirus --> change the sound for 'automatic VPS update to none in the drop down box.
