Dear Avast
« on: November 14, 2011, 11:47:11 AM »
Dear Avast,

Its been 2 weeks since you started to pester me with pop ups. That's one month b4 my license expires. Since you do this 5-6 time per day it's been roughly 77 times that you stole visual focus of other applications on one computer alone. Not only that, you also push yourself to the foreground when other full screen applications are running. What makes matters worse is that the pop up is coloured the same a virus alert is.

By the end of my licenses I will have been about 450 times (3 licenses= 3 computers) annoyed by you. If you think that I'm looking forward to this happening all over again in one year's time should I re-new my licenses then you are sadly mistaken.

Best regards
'Why did I have to pay for this?'

Yeah right. I can also sell my soul to Avast ;D

My point was merely that repeating the same message over and over again doesn't make it any more important or better.
If I had trouble remembering that Avast 'begged' me to re-new my license I would probably have forgotten that there is an AV installed in the first place.

Funny, to some extend.

I have 3 legit/real licenses. I'll try for the screen shot.

Thanks. The pop-ups look ok.
But no idea, why they would show that often..??
