Having recently switched operating systems to Windows 7, I also decided to load Avira Antivirus as my main antivirus program.
As you may recall in an earlier post, I explained how to disable the annoying Avira splash screen (notifier) on an XP operating system.
After a little exploration and trial and error, I have figured out how to disable the notifier splash screen in Windows 7.
To get started, find the folder where Avira is stored (in mine it’s in Program Files x86) I have a 64bit OS.
Open the folder.
In this folder, you should have another folder called Antivir Desktop (open it).
Scroll down to Avnotify.exe and right click.
Click on Properties.
Click on the Security tab.
Click on Edit.
Make sure “System” is highlighted.
Check the “Read and Execute” and “Read” box in the Deny column.
That should do the trick for you.
