    Notifier CANNOT be disabled inside program itself. You need to hack it with some 3rd party tool.

    Avast or Antivir. Either one is nice (for free).

    AVG free is probably not good enough, unless you use Sandboxie or something.

    It's nice but a little bloated on your system, might wanna try an older version of it.

    Cheater87,
    Note my set ups below. They are all working well together. My AOL AVS replaced my McAfee Av.

    I slightly perfer Antivir Classic. Notifier does not bother me just click o. k. no harm done. Never tried Avast. ;)
