Avast 6 Startup Message
« on: March 01, 2011, 03:27:26 PM »
So I've recently updated to Avast 6. Everything seems good, but I've noticed that there is a "secured" message that now pops up every time at system startup. It's nothing huge, but it does get tiring after a while to remove it whenever I boot up my computer. So is there a settings feature to prevent it from popping up?

Is that the avast gadget?

If so you can permanently disable it by going to:
   Control Panel >  Programs and Features > Double-click Avast > Click the Change option then next > Uncheck "Avast! Gadget" then click next.

For better reference, it looks like this:



but XVSkulblaka7, I believe it may be a gadget. I'll try to remove it.

That is the avast gadget for Vista and Windows7.

So the removal instruction should work.
