Remove Notification Bar in AVG 8.5 and 9.0

This guide has been revisited and it is confirmed to work with the current latest version of AVG (9.0.814).With over 200 million downloads on CNET alone, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is among the most [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on the market today. If you're one of the
countless users who find AVG's notification area to be naggy (present since version 8.0), then keep reading to disable it once and for all.
The workaround is as simple as renaming a couple of files in AVG's main program directory - usually C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8 or AVG9,
so head there now.



In an attempt to save you thirty seconds, we've written a quick batch file which renames the files and disables the notification area. To
accompany that, we've also created a batch file to reverse the name changes and re-enable the notification area. Note: The batch files
should work for all language versions of AVG.


Download: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] | [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

To let the batch file take care of everything for you, place it in AVG's
main directory and double click on it. The change should take effect
instantly. If you can't bear to part with AVG's nagware, simply run
Enable_AVG_Notification from the same directory to regress all changes.



If you'd rather take matters into your own hands and confront the files directly or if we somehow missed your language in the batch file, no problem.
First, open AVG's program directory. Then click Tools on the top menu of the Windows Explorer window and open Folder Options.
Scroll through the View tab until you see Hide extensions for known file types and uncheck it. Click OK.



You can remove the ad by crippling (read: rename, move, or delete) the file avgfree_us.mht. We've opted to simply place .bak on the end
(avgfree_us.mht.bak) and that works just fine. Note that the "_us" portion corresponds to your language.

That's all folks! AVG 8.5/9.0 should be nag-free unless an update comes
along and breaks this workaround.

spans viruses all the way back to 1971.
