Please tell me how to stop advertisements appearing on the AVG Internet Security user interface.

At the moment AVG/Avast are trying to sell VPN to users, most of whom do not need it if they use sensible security security measures. Just stop it will you or provide a system to disable your adverts.

Hello, Mike.
Thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns. Many of our users find these offers useful. We handpick them from our own products or those of partners we feel can add to your security or digital experience. You can disable the ad pop ups appearing in system tray but the Secure VPN pop ad on AVG Internet Security interface can not be disabled.

However, we will take this as your valuable feedback and pass it up to our developers.

I have just installed Secure VPN, but I am confused, it said 60 Free Trial, yet when I logged in today it said tree trial expires in 29 days? I thought it would not expire till June, but it's looking more like the 19th of May, so I am really confused by this, do I got a 60 day trial or just 39 days?

Hello Tom,
I understand the inconvenience caused.
You have AVG Secure VPN (60 days trial), which will expire on 6/20/2018. Could you share a screenshot of the AVG Secure VPN user Interface to assist you further?
You can post the screenshot here on your topic. Click on 'Answer' & then click on the 'Image' [mountain symbol] & follow the instructions.

Hello, I've recently started receiving an error message in regards to my product (owned since Jan) claiming that I have a License Error and that I need to re-enter a license in order for it to work again. However I own AVG Ulitmate which after re-checking the product states it doesn't require a license number. But because of this error message I can't even go into AVG to re-enter my log in details to attempt to override whatever is going on.

My father is also connected to the same AVG account and so far has had no issues with his own protection on his machine so i'm weary to mess around with stuff I don't fully understand if there's a chance it could mess up his protection too. 

I'm not very tech savvy but you guys have helped me in the past with synching up my Father's protection so I'm hopeful this can be resolved fairly quickly. 

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for the response.  I am very happy with the Privacy feature and ad blocker part of the product. It has speeded up my enjoyment for 'the various websites immensely especially Fox News.  I do not think I need addtion AD B;ocking software at this time and thanks for helping me understand the differneces.  Great product!

Recently, I had to restore my computer to a state almost two years earlier, to recover from a major systerm crash. At the time, I had Cloudcare, and later had a one-year subscription to AVG Family Safety which expired in June of this year. As far as I can tell, currently neither Cloud Care or Family Security are present on my Programs list, however the Bsecure Endpoint Security program still remains. 

When the message appeared today, and blocked internet access, I was able to do a normal Systems Restore to a point two days earlier. 

Can you please send me instructions on how to remove whatever is remaining on my system that would case that error message to appear and lock up my internet?   Thanks

I'm trying to install AVG driver update on my w10 laptop and it keeps failing. The installation starts and before i can click on "accept", a windows shows up saying "forbidden 403" and stops the process. I've admin right on the laptop and AVG Tune up is running well.
Any ideas?
