Hi I have installed Avira Antivir free and every day I have some
opening of advertising windows (to buy Avira Premium). How could I
solve this problem? If it is impossible I will replace that boring,
antivirus.
Thanks

You'd be cutting off your nose to spite your face.  Avira is at the
top of the heap for AV protection now.  ...or upgrade to the premium
version.  You could do worse.

In stead of complaining like a little child,

AFAIK, you can't get rid of the pop-ups.

FWIW, I wouldn't get rid of Avira, it's one of the top rated AV programs.

You may have to modify the instructions a little bit,
because the latest version (9.0.0.403) the path is:
C:\Program Files\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\avnotify.exe
(etc.)

Replace

This is also stated in *Note (bottom of the page)

The easiest solution is not use a "free" program. I think the popup is
a small thing compared to getting great AV with no money out of
pocket.
