snooz Posted September 9, 2009 Share Posted September 9, 2009 (edited) Recently switched to Avira Personal and was annoyed by the popup advertisements and the fact you can only update once a day. I figured ways around these limitations and wanted to share it with those of you who use it. By doing them my complaints go to zero on a free application that does everything I need it to.1) Advertisement pop-ups.They come from avnotify.exe in "C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop"To prevent them from happening do Start | Run | secpol.msc | Software Restriction Policies | Additional Rules | Right click in white space | New Path Rule and set the following...2) Update more frequently than a day.For those of you who have tried to change the schedule in Avira you cannot change it to anything below a day. You can get around this by disabling the schedule in Avira and handling it through Windows Scheduled Tasks. I am going to assume you know how to create a Hourly task.Here is the command-line:"C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\update.exe" /DM="1" /NOMESSAGEBOX /receivetimeout=180/DM="1" hides the message box and /DM="0" shows the box.
