Hello! Folks,

I don't know why this Avast licensing alert keeps appearing every time I open my desktop computer.

My Avast Antivirus is not a free version. I purchased them with a valid key. I can still remember I once updated this software.

Later on, this message keeps popping out. I want to remove this.

Is there any way how?

Avast Licensing Alert
Your free antivirus will expire soon
Your version is obsolete - a new version available.

First, right click the avast icon located on the right side of your screen. Then click "program settings". Then click "trouble shooting" now check the box "disable avast, self defense" then press ok. Then go to "program files" look for "alwil software" and double click "avast" then search and delete " asw5not2.exe". Now all you have to do is just restart your computer. The popping up is now disabled.

Thank you.

Licensing Alert keeps popping up on Avast Security software is very annoying sometimes, this is informing you that the software is about to expire soon. I will give you step by step instructions to remove these reminders.

  1. Look for Avast Security software icon in your system tray.
  2. Right click and select Program Settings.
  3. This will open the Avast Settings screen.
  4. Look for Troubleshooting in the left panel.
  5. Click on it and check Disabled avast! self-defense module.
  • Once checked, this will allow you to delete and make changes of the software, then we can move on to the next steps.
  • Go to Start>>>>Computer>>>> Local C drive>>>>> Program Files>>>> Avast Software folder.
  • Look for asw5Not23 and delete this file name and this will remove the Licensing Alert window pop-up.
  • The steps provided above will not let you worry about the pop-up, but you will still need to update your Avast Security software to keep up to date Antivirus program.
