How to Silence AVAST Update Signal

Avast Software : 16 November, 2010  (New Product)
Muting the antivirus software update announcement from AVAST is a simple process using silent or gaming mode
Who hasn't been embarrassed by unexpected sounds from a computer? Advertisements, music, or even the news that the avast! antivirus database has been updated can be a real surprise. Most of us, however, haven't had this happen in front of thousands of wrestling fans.

It certainly happened to A.J and Nikki Bella, two professional female wrestlers, during their bout at the Manchester Arena in the UK. Even the announcers thought the statement "avast! virus database has been updated" was more entertaining than some of the wrestling moves by these two ladies.

With avast! antivirus, these surprises don't have to happen. Activating the Silent/Gaming Mode is a simple way to mute avast! sounds and pop-ups and is far easier than perfecting the Ace Crusher or the Four-Figure Leglock moves in professional wrestling.

The audio elements in avast! are a polarizing feature. Many people like the announcements because it tells them that their avast! is active and updated. Others, like A.J. and Nikki, find it a distraction to their work. It's all up to you. The solution is simple: If you don't like it, just turn it off. And remember, you are only turning off the audio - you are still fully protected against malware.

For safe and silent computing

• Try the Silent/Gaming mode. Right-click on the avast! icon in the System Tray, on the lower left-hand corner of the monitor, to open the user interface. Then another right-click on the Silent/Gaming Mode will activate this function and turn off all audio and visual reminders.
• Be selective. To select which alerts you want to hear, go through the settings function in avast! to the Sounds menu, then pick and choose.
• Now relax. You are still fully protected, whether the sounds are turned on or off.
