Disable Avira 10 Popup Notifier Splash Screen

Avira 10 was released yesterday and it has received many great feedbacks. Avira 10 offer a free version called AntiVir Personal where home users will be able to use it to protect their computer against virus. The personal version is the trimmed down version where it offers less features if compared to the Premium version but still using the same technology to detect, block and scan for virus.

Another annoyance that comes with Avira AntiVir 10 Personal is the notifier popup window. This is an advertisement window from Avira showing the latest news such as roadshows or asking the user to buy the Premium version.

Fortunately this Avira notifier window for Personal edition can be easily disabled. The easiest method is to use No Notify Avira, a simple program that asks you a few questions and then generates a few registry files that can be merge to your Windows registry and disables the nag popup notifier window.

The current version of No Notifier Avira runs on Windows 95/98/NT/XP/Vista/7 and claims to only support Avira 8 and 9. If you are using the latest Avira 10, just select version 9 which would also work. We tested it and Avira detects this tool as a Virtool trojan which is in fact a clean file and it is also hosted in Majorgeeks.

Update: No Notify Avira v3.4 has been released to officially support Avira AntiVir 10 popup notifier.

    The latest version of free Avira v10.XXX has worked around all NoNotifyAvira versions. Editing the Registry doesn’t work. If you try to disable avnotify.exe through the security tab, it crashes the program, you can’t uninstall it and you can’t reinstall or repair it. I had to use system restore to go back to an earlier point in time and then uninstall and reinstall. I’m running Vista Home Premium. Seems like you can edit the Registry with /min or /- and when the nag screen shows up, it is off the screen lower right under the system tray. -:( That will have to do for now until we come up with another method to disable it.
