Google Chrome was installed 1 time without my permission.  I immediately uninstalled it.

When I updated to the latest stable version of Avast it didn't show anything about Chrome, not before restarting or after restarting.

Maybe avast management has finally seen the light and shown at least a little speck of respect for its users and actually given them some form of choice in which browser they can use.

But what i did/have noticed is that the chrome tickboxes were conveniently smaller in the installer page.This is in itself a attempt at sneak installing and could be construed as malicious and unwanted in nature. >:(
