I use Avast with my Win 8.1 and have been happy with it til now. I have been getting daily reminders to update my Avast to a premium version and to stop getting the reminders last time, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it making sure I have the Free version downloaded and not a Trail version but it has started to prompt me again after only a few weeks on the new install.

If I have the free version I wouldn't expect to be prompted to upgrade to a paid version or is this what to expect? Is this the same for others that have it?

1. Yes that is what you may expect
However, if you are using Free Antivirus 2015, the only way to disable the sale offers is to upgrade your protection to the paid one.


2. The simple solution is to uninstall AVAST and use the FREE and no sales pop-ups - Windows defender included with 8/8.1
and indeed IMHO your system will run more smoothly and with no problems - as against the use of the FREE Avast.
Avast is good of that there is little doubt, but I am not convinced that the free AVAST is the best for Windows 8.1
