    Issue with Avast

    Was wondering if I could get an opinion on the Avast free security, I've been using for some time but the constant reminder of your PC is being slowed by certain things like 2 GB's of junk files and a few other things, is this a major concern. thanks very much and sorry for the lame question.

    I don't use it any more, too many scare tactics. Defender works just as well.

    If you enable silent mode, you will not receive any notifications/ADs and it will work just fine.

    Yes as above you can use silent mode or gaming mode, both those should cease notification.
