Disable AVG pop ups

I get it, you’re sick of seeing AVG notifications popping up on your screen every second.

I always get notifications on the bottom left of my screen telling me about threats in my system but even after I fix them, I still see these pop-ups.

In this article, I’m going to show you very simple steps you can take to get rid of the AVG popup notifications.

Delete AVG Popup Folders

  1. Right-click on AVG icon in taskbar
  2. Select Temporarily Disable AVG Protection and agree to the default timeout
  3. Open File Explorer
  4. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AVG201x\ for 64bit systems or C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG201x\ for 34-bit systems
  5. Delete the folders: Banners, Awacs, and Tuneup
  6. Close File Explorer
  7. Right-click on the AVG icon and enable AVG Protection
  8. You should no longer see AVG popups

If you don’t know if you’re using a 32-bit or a 64-bit PC, you can always check in the control panel.

Stop AVG Popups with Command Promt

If the method above didn’t work, you should try and eradicate the popups with commands.

Commands are different codes that perform tasks on your PC– these codes will tell your PC to stop the notifications from popping up.

  1. Hold Windows key + R to open Run
  2. Type cmd.exe to open Command Prompt
  3. Enter the following 17 commands and click the Enter key after each one

Disable the Services:

  • SC CONFIG “avgsvc” START=disabled
  • SC CONFIG “avgwd” START=disabled
  • SC CONFIG “avgAMPS” START=disabled
  • SC CONFIG “AVGIDSAgent” START=disabled

Stop the Services:

  • SC STOP “avgsvc”
  • SC STOP “avgwd”
  • SC STOP “avgAMPS”

Stop the AVG Processes:

  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgemca.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgidsagent.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgnsa.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgrsa.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgcsrva.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgui.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgsvca.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avguix.exe /T
  • TASKKILL /F /IM avgwdsvca.exe /T

After running all of these commands, you should no longer see any pop-ups by AVG.

Deleting the pop-up folders is the quickest way to disable AVG free pop-ups – these also include threat notifications.
