Your Avira product generates so-called slide-ups, desktop notifications for specific events, which give information on successful or failed program sequences such as updates. Under Alerts you can enable or disable the notifications for specific events.
With desktop notifications, you have the option of disabling the notification directly in the slide-up. You can reactivate the notification, in the Alerts configuration window.
