How to Remove the Popup Ads in Avira Antivir


While
Avira Antivir has one of the best detection rates of all antivirus, one
of the main disadvantages is that after updating, you get annoying
full-screen ads nagging you to upgrade. To remove these, read on.

Excellent ★★★★

edit Steps

  1. 1
    Go to Start > Run.

    2. Type gpedit.msc and click OK
  2. 3

  3. 4
    Double click "Don't run specified Windows applications".

    Restart.

Alternate:

  1. 1
    Start > Run: secpol.msc
    (You can also access this program through 'Control Panel >
    Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy' this is useful if it
    is easier the location of this rather than the file name)

    Right click "Software Restriction Policies," Choose "New Software Restriction Policies." (Skip this step if there are subfolders in Software Restriction Policies already.)
  3. 3
    Right Click "Additional Rule" folder > New Path Rule.
  4. 4
    Where it says Path, Type the path of avnotify.exe
    on your computer, or use the Browse button to find it. (On XP64 using a
    default install of Avira, the path is: (C:\Program Files
    (x86)\Avira\AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic\avnotify.exe)
  5. 5
    Make sure the "Security Level" Dropdown menu is selected as "Disallowed"

edit Tips



  • Before giving up, try setting a restriction on avnotify.dll as well.
  • A more expensive way to do this is just to pay for Avira AntiVir
    Premium, if you are satisfied with the free version (but obviously not
    its popup ads).
  • Another way suggested by some users to handle this problem is to use a program called Clickoff. You can download it at: http://www.johanneshuebner.com/en/clickoff.shtml









edit Warnings




  • Disabling the popup ads may be considered a violation of Avira's
    End-user license agreement (EULA). The licensee is not authorized
    without the written express permission of Avira, to change, translate,
    retro-develop, decompile or disassemble the Software, or to create
    works derived from the Software or the documentation, or to reproduce,
    translate, change or create works derived from the documentation ,
    insofar as this is not absolutely necessary within the context of
    contractual use. Understand that Avira has the right to terminate your
    software without notice in the case of substantial violations of
    contractual obligations
