Yesterday I downloaded Avira Antivir free edition and had heard about the annoying notify.exe which pops up a notice upon downloading updates asking to upgrade to the paid version. There are other ways of disabling the notice through XP administrator but rather on D+ alert I blocked it trying to access the COM interface Shell.Explorer.2 and remembered the answer.
After getting a MS error report on a manual update I removed avnotify.exe from D+ and set the scheduler for a few minutes later. I really can’t recall how I answered but it’s set to custom, all access rights are ask and protection settings, no. It’s run the updater since with no pop up ad. I’ll wait and see, if and when I get the pop ups and just how annoying they are before disabling with your suggestions.
I would but I’m stubborn, like the earlier days of CFP3. ;D
Yeah, I could do that but If I wanted to pay, I would have stuck with NOD32.
It’s paid full version does look sweet, much like Avast free! Anyway, after changing the permissions back in D+, I haven’t got any MS error reports, and scheduled updates are working fine, but I have been getting the pop up ads.
Really is clicking the “X” on the nag screen that big a deal?
It is one thing to complain about the update server problem Avira has,thats a valid point.
The nag screen is a non-issue.
If you are willing to use more resourse for less detection,Avast just might be your
With your directions (and 4 denials) auto update seems to be working without the nag screen.
I could have re-upped to NOD32 AV for $50 for two years or slightly cheaper than Avira Pro. From reading Wilders, Eset appears to be having some problems of late. And it also seems as though they really want you to upgrade to v3 from 2.7 although I prefer the latter.
