Do you use Skype ? If you don’t like the ads, My recent post in the Avast Support Forum might help you fix this annoyance: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=163498.msg1166159#msg1166159

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

Image
The Christmas Season is the nicest time of the year. It's the time when we think of friends far and near.
A time to reflect of all that's happened during the past year and hope we can do things as well or better next year.
A time to give thanks to the Lord up above. A time to think about all those we love.
A time also to think about giving back to those in need some of the excess we really don't need.
This is the season for giving and sharing it's one way to show love for your fellow man by caring.
You're never taller than when you stoop to help someone in need. So step up and do that good deed.
Make next year be the best year of your life and share the joy with a friend, a neighbor, a relative and your partner in life.
Merry Christmas and a Happy 2015 to everyone.

The Holiday Season is a time for us to be happy, not a time for a Cyber crook to steal your information or identity.
Here is a little video that shows you just how easy it is to run one of these scans.

Vulnerabilities that may be found can be easily fixed using the guide posted by Lisandro Carmona on the Avast blog:
