You can turn off the sound for automatic update while still keeping the green notification so you'll still know when it's updated.

BTW, Avast update sound is indeed loud, leads to funny situations ;D

There is a thread at techguy forums where suggestions are made for programs to adjust individual wav's. Several links to various programs proffered, there, too.
You might want to choose one of them and try it out.

(Yeah, I know, shouldn't have to. But you do, if you want to moderate them. I have the same issue, but not with Avast sounds. More other files; there are large variations in volume of source sound files at times. Eg: some youtube videos are so loud they distort, some can be barely heard.)

This idea would be good. Someone commented that they used my tutorial to reduce the volume of the sounds made by avast! so it is possible.

mp3gain 1.2.5 could adjust the mp3 volume level (freeware).

Hello,
The Avast audio was too loud for me, and found it can be adjusted in the standard Windows Volume Mixer.
After an Avast audio is played it shows up in the built-in Windows Volume Mixer for a while.
You probably need to have "All devices currently playing sound" checked in "Volume control options".
All this can be accessed by right clicking the speaker icon in the System Tray.
No 3rd party program needed.
I'm using Win 7 (fully updated) and Avast free 7.0.1466

I know this an old thread and my first Avast post, but may help others searching for this.
