Keep AVG function, eliminate message window

by schwaber / April 14, 2013 11:21 AM PDT

I apologize if this is a multiple post, but this dialog window keeps disappearing whenever I try to reposition it and reappears blank, once after I clicked on the submit button, so I have no idea if the question was posted or not. (I am using the very latest Firefox update.)

Anyway, I want to keep AVG scanning my emails, but that little black pop up window in the lower right ("scanning e-mails") is driving me crazy to the point where I am about to turn off the email scanning function. How can I simply opt out of having that notification pop up?

Hi schwaber,

This notification can be easily disabled in AVG >> F8 >> Appearance >> untick Email Scanner notifications. Let me know if this works for you.

Thanks, Jan.

Jan -- Don't know if you are the greatest or just one of the greatest, but at least so far that worked like a charm. Thanks a million.
