If you don't stop trying to force me to install Google Chrome, I'm done with you.  Stop giving me popups about installing it even when I have popups disabled in settings.

Might you be able to do a screen shot of the next popup?  Would appreciate the help in understanding what sort of popup you are seeing.

Thank you.

Wait a moment.  I forget.  Are new folks here able to attach images?

You aren't being forced to install chrome. It's a suggestion that you can refuse.
See if this helps:

Google Chrome is the safest and fastest browser around. Like bob said "Its a suggestion". No one is forcing anything on you. Be happy the Avast team is looking out for everyone and trying to make them aware of Google Chrome.

Get real, folks!

It's not that they are trying to offer some advice about a browser.  Not at all.  Not even close!!

What it is is that Google, Inc. forces Avast to do the opt-out style, instead of the opt-in.

Don't feed BS to people, okay?  We know you folks aren't that stupid.

This is the heavy hand of one man -- Larry Page!!!  Plain and simple.

And that idea that Chrome is the safest is also BS.  The information Google, Inc. is stuffing into their data files that they collect from those that use Chrome should be illegal.

But as the United States government is also storing data and much of it with the help of Google, Inc. it will be a cold day in hell when any United States lawmaker will clamp down on all this data collecting.

So who can we turn to to protect us from all this?

Do your research my friend. Chrome with its add ons and sandbox is by far the safest and fastest browser around.

Yes, you might be right,  but who is trying to help who(m)?

Anyway, we're waiting for the return of the OP, so while we wait and as long as others are going to ... you know, do that.

@ManyQs,

You certainly will like the contents on this site. The translation into English is here:

"I have nothing to hide" is the excuse  that will provide  some with the pre-text to give up their online privacy alltogether,
Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Thank you for posting that link, polonus.

You know, I always have in my head something that took place a few years ago.  Some CEO or president of some hotshot tech company was saying something about there being no more privacy in the world and folks should just get over it and it popped into my mind whether that fella would have a bank account and if he did if he had posted the account number and password and all that because there wasn't any privacy anyway.

It's funny how all these folks that make money from taking away our privacy still try to have some privacy of their own even while they are doing like that rich fella and extolling the benefits of us giving away our privacy, but they keep all their money privately stashed away in some bank that must have assured them that their money is safe because of all the safeguards of their private PINs and all that.  Ironic, isn't it?  There's no privacy for you, but don't touch my money.

The day when there really isn't a thing called privacy in the world will truly be a remarkable day in the history of the human race, because on that day we will all truly be equal.

The way I see it, the only reason these hotshot tech companies want to take away my privacy is because they want to make some money at my expense.  And they are succeeding and the reason they are succeeding is because the lawmakers twenty years ago weren't paying attention and now it's too late.

Well, that is until there is that really, really massive solar flare that wipes out the Internet as we know it and Dr. Neumann gets his wish and we start all over again.

You folks do know about Dr. Peter G. Neumann, don't you?
