Disabling ipmgui.exe..

Hello,
every now and then when I start my PC the notify appears asking me wether I need help or not.
It's related to ipmgui.exe, how can I prevent this?
I do not need popus of any kind except those I choose.

Is there a good way to avoid this, because disabling info and other things in the settings configuration did not help

Yes I will do next time it shows up, I had it 2 times.
I'll post it here..

It is just a popup in the right bottom corner, asking me me if I need support from Avira.

Hi bimbobo,

I suppose that you receive it only when you update Avira, am I right?

Hi,

I will stand corrected but from what I see the file ipmgui.exe is only connected to the free Avira product messaging and can be found here
%PROGRAMFILES%\avira\antivir desktop\ipmGui.exe
You may also see it running in Task Manager as the process ipmgui.exe.

I realise you do not get the popups now :thumbup: but if they reoccur and setting configurations has no effect then maybe just kill ipmgui.exe in TM after boot up.

thanks for answers...

Is there a way to block "notify" after updating.
I have Win7 Premium so I cannot access many "places" in Windows like you can with higher versions.

I tried to block in "security" for the notify.exe, but at every update it's overwritten.

Hi,

If it really is a bother then possibly after any boot check TM for ipmgui.exe and kill. Then test by udateing Avira once done go back into TM and check again.

I have ipmgui.exe Win 7 x64 trying to access the internet approximately every 30 minutes, which is many times per day. It does not appear to do anything useful but it is annoying, so I have blocked it.

Hi bimbobo,

You can't disable this message. Only users of Avira Premium and Internet Security can do it. For me it is enough to click on "x".

I don't think this would be in concordance with the Avira Free usage terms..

@AlfaMS,

I've disabled such posts ^^
I'll also try to clarify the Avira side about this matter.

Some clarification would indeed be much appreciated - thank you Marco.
