I have popups blocked which works generally. However I currently have a couple of irritating popups I cannot control.
The first is Avast which I use for security. Everytime it blocks a threat a popup appears and I get a voice telling me it has been blocked. How do I turn this off?
Secondly, I have a popup which appears only at start up, telling me an update has failed. It is not clear what update although from the symbol it looks like a sony ericsson mobile phone. It says check your internet connections and make sure settings are not blocking it. Again how can I both check out what this update actually is and then update if needed?
Thanks v much for the ideas. Good news, I have managed to stop the Avast voice message which is a great improvement. However can't see how to turn off the actual popup which is still appearing in bottom right hand corner.
On the right you will see some items such as ENGINE & VIRUS DEFINITIONS, well further down you will see "Details" to the right of that is a drop down arrow and then you shall see what's called "Update Options" & there are 3 tick marks also, delete the middle tick for "Show notifications box after automatic update"
Huge thanks for very quick response. I have just done that so hopefully the popup will disappear. You are right, in a sense it is quite comforting to know it is working, but I find it just too irritating!
On the strange phone popup I clicked on your link to mobile but it just took me to o2 so wasn't much clearer. This, I am pretty sure, is a sony ericsson pop up and I am with orange. When the popup arrives it gives an error code which means nothing to me. I will note it down when I next restart in case it is relevant.
