    I just insatlled Avira for a test run and have found something I'm not fond of. Everytime I do a definitions update, yhis really big, Red window opens after the update to ask if I want to upgrade to the pro version. It just bugs me and I'd like to get rid of it. I looked in the registery and found an entry that may be related. See attached screen shot.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks Phantom010... Did the registry edit (/nosplash) process. Now I'll wait until tomorrow and run a manual update to see if it does the job. I expect it will work as advertised.

    The registry edit did not get rid of the nag screen. So I did the safe mode change to the Avira avnotify.exe properties. That did it for me.

    I'll mark this thread solved.
