Block Avira ads with itself: doesn’t work

[UPDATE TO UPDATE] Yup so none of that actually worked and I’ve gone back to panda because if I’m gonna do ads I might as well do it with the horse I’m familiar with. [/UPDATE TO UPDATE]

[UPDATE] Using Avira to block itself didn’t work.  I am now trying this tutorial. [/UPDATE]

I recently started using free Avira antivirus, switching from Panda Cloud AV because Panda kept popping up upgrade-to-pro ads at me *boo*.

I soon found out that Avira also pops up ads *boo*.

However, thanks to this great WikiHow article 5 Ways to Remove the Popup Ads in Avira Antivirus it’s all awesome now!

Obviously, I chose method 5 of 5: using Avira itself.  It tickled me to no end that I can tell Avira that its own annoying self is suspicious and needs quanrantine :D!
