Windows XP Home
Windows 2000 / Windows XP Pro
- 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.)
- Right Click “Additional Rule” folder > New Path Rule.
- 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)AviraAntiVir PersonalEdition Classicavnotify.exe)
- Make sure the “Security Level” Dropdown menu is selected as “Disallowed“
- If you would like to make sure it went through correctly, open the Additional Rules folder, and verify the path and security level.
- Enjoy the absence of nag windows.
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business/Ultimate
Note: The legalities of removing the popups with Avira Personal/Free are questioned. Some people say it is okay to do so while others say it is not. Use your own judgment please. :)
