To all those whining/complaining about in-software ads/popups/silent updates...

Recommended Posts

1. Stop using the Free version and purchase the Pro when on sale. (Free is NOT what it was anymore after Avast takeover)

2. Start using a firewall (should be basic standard for any PC user) and block:

analytics.ff.avast.com

CCUpdate.exe (probably not needed after 5.50 update)

To be really specific, I have blocked everything except:

151.101.54.202 (Check for updates)

3. Set Updates to 'manual' and uncheck everything in Privacy. (Needs 5.50 update)

4. Use a *cough*alternate*cough* version

5. Uninstall and use another similar software

 

I get no ads, popups, or forced updates. Most of the users complaining here are either on the Free version and/or don't use any firewall whatsoever.

Windows includes a built in firewall, and will bark if it's disabled.:P

By bark, you mean the Action Center? Think there was a way to disable its complaining if you don't use any AV/Firewall.
