How to Disable Audio Announcements in Avast 5

For protecting your computer from internet threats Avast anti-virus can be of great help, because, it’s free and offers real-time and heuristic protection from all types of threats. But, when it does an update or finishes a scan, it makes louder voice announcements, which is often annoying or interrupting the user (at least for me!).

Here is how to disable audio announcements in Avast antivirus 5 free versions. This is very simple, no technical knowhow required.

Open Avast main Window and click ‘Settings’. Then select ‘Sounds’ and deselect ‘Enable Avast! Sounds’ or choose an event, for example ‘Automatic update’. After selecting an option, click OK to save the settings. That’s all!
