AVS Media Demo voice overrides Audacity recording

I first downloaded a free trial of AVS, but found it was not what I was looking for, and immediately removed all AVS components from my computer’s control panel. I have had some experience in using Audacity so I downloaded it and it looks like it’s for me. However, any recording I make with Audacity has a voice overlay, every few seconds, stating “AVS Media Demo”. I can’t find any trace of AVS on my computer because I removed it yet I still get this AVS voice intrusion. How do I get rid of this nuisance voice interference? It’s driving me crazy

Put AVS back in and this time remove it with Control Panel > Add Remove Programs?

Does AVS have an Uninstaller?

No one is shocked that AVS put the copy protection in a place very difficult to remove, but it does suggest you removed AVS wrong.


AVS is not our product. Support for AVS is available through their web site. Instructions for uninstalling current AVS products are here: http://www.avs4you.com/guides/How-to-uninstall-AVS4YOU-programs.aspx

You could open System Restore and restore your computer to a restore point from a time before you installed AVS.

And as you’ve been told before, please ask AVS if you cannot solve the problem yourself:

Just finished restoring my system to a time before I installed AVS. Of course the restoration removed Audacity, but after downloading Audacity again, it still will not play any songs I choose, from my playlist, without blanketing my work with the words “AVS Media Demo”. It, now, appears this wretched thing has infiltrated all songs in my playlist. Bazar!

Audacity doesn’t use “playlists”. This the only Audacity version we can help you with: http://audacityteam.org/download/windows .

We cannot help you with AVS problems at all.


You might want to have a look at this forum thread http://forum.avs4you.com/posts.aspx?t=509&lng=ENG

It is from the AVS4YOU people. Here is the gist of it:

“Voice logo cannot be removed from files created with non-activated version. The only way is re-convert original files again with activated version. The topic is closed. Unfortunately, voice logo cannot be removed from the files created with non-activated version. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but you were warned by the program the logo will be added to output files. Please find all the details in our FAQ section: http://forum.avs4you.com/posts.aspx?lng=ENG&t=1974”

So if you have not made a backup of your original files, you’ve got no way out of this quandary!

“AVS Media w w w . a v s m e d i a . c o m demo versions of software for file-format conversion insert an voice-over advertisement into converted audio files unless you pay their exorbitant registrations fee. Do not try out this software! You’ll be sorry if you do.”

Thanks, Robert2. So yes, if the songs you are playing were converted, recorded or processed by AVS, you are stuck with the “audio watermark”. You were already told this in one of the replies from our feedback@ address.
