Seems to be rather difficult to understand it right.  :-\  ;)

NO, but then again I don't know what it is you don't understand ?

Well, you can see it several ways...

Nobody has a rebuttal to the claim that Avast mobile is worthless?

Rather than starting a new post and then, get the same unhelpful answers in a NEW posting, I posted here as a reply to say that this is still happening in 2023.  Every day for the past month, I have been "offered" the "FREE" version option or the "upgrade" option AND, I select "Free" every time as usual.  But then, another window comes up with the "Upgrade" option ONLY and, there is NO button to click in this window or the next that says: "No Thanks".  AND, no close button on either of the windows or, when I "right click" it in the task bar so, it blocks my screen until I close the window with my keyboard strokes"  "alt + F4"  What's that about?
Anyhow, today is the last day to renew so, what's gonna happen now?  I have been using Avast for years.  Will I then have to download AVG?

Screen shots included:
The screen with the "choice" of selecting the Free version OR the Upgrade but, with no close button or option for "NO THANKS" as someone posted here earlier.
Screen shot after I select "FREE", and an upgrade screen comes up...also with no close button or option for "NO THANKS".
Screen shot as I follow that option to see if I can opt out there and there is no option for that.  Every day for about a month, this has been going on.
 
I have Windows XP so, this is the last version I can download of the free.  The version on my XP is 18.8.2356 (build 18.8.4084.409)

That definitely falls under Interesting.
Another Add-on for YouTube that I use is "Adblock for Youtube™"
I use YouTube premium so there aren't any ads.

I can understand why you would have YouTube Premium, having a channel, etc.
But for me I have never considered it for the time I spend on YouTube.  Though I do a little more now, mainly following the War in Ukraine.
I pay for the premium because I don't have to look at the ads.

Neither do I, based on my "Adblock for Youtube™" which I didn't have to pay for.  With your recommendation of Unhook for YouTube it makes it even better.

@  silverjenny698
It really is hard to recommend something for someone else not knowing their requirements.

Also you haven't said what your are using right now ?
Avast for the most part is lighter than many other Antiviruses.

Given my specifications (below my posts) are a little better than yours.  I found Avast Free best suits my needs, but I have only been using it for 19 years.  I also don't install all components, basically the core protection File, Mail,  Behaviour Shields. I don't install the Firewall and just use the Windows10 Firewall.  The more components you install the more likely it could add system load.

Note: that there is a new product Avast One that has more components than Avast Antivirus (Free), I wouldn't recommend that as you have greater configuration options in the avast antivirus (free).

Every system and configuration is different, try the Avast free version to test and if not suitable look elsewhere.

"Note" that you need to remove all other previous antiviruses with their uninstall tool before installing Avast.

So, reading this article, is the Windows 10/11 firewall sufficient for normal/personal use of a PC?
In my opinion, yes. Many AV vendors also think so as they have dropped there own firewall and just add a network scanner that monitor the traffic in windows firewall. Avira/Trend Micro/F-secure/Webroot have done this
Ok thanks!  ;)
