Avira to pull Notifier Ads from Free Antivirus
This is what Avira said in their blog “We also never liked it (notifier ads). We used it because we wanted to finance the Free Antivirus so that we continue to be able to offer free good quality security to the millions of users that are counting on it. But, soon we realized that despite the fact that it paid for a small percentage of the costs, it pushed away exactly the users for which we were striving to make the updates more frequent.”.
