You can even do this! Under Add/Remove. click on Avast and remove the Avast Online Security. After that restart manually.

Since the App isn't available in the Windows APP Store, you can't add it.

Hi bob3160,

That is bad and a Microsoft restrictive policy. Not very Avast friendly.
Does that also mean you cannot have it as an extension when you make the Google Chrome or firefox app your default browser via Settings- System- Standard-apps -When asked whether you like these as default either set Google Chrome or firefox as your default browser before MS sends you to the Standard App Screen again. Microsoft sort of sets a preference to Edge.  :(
Is Windows 10 really that restrictive to user's choice that you cannot install apps/extensions from the Google Webstore
then it is ad bad as Google on Google Android where you cannot escape their Admob ads?

Don't have a clue what you're trying to get across Damien. AOS isn't available through the Windows store therefore can't be installed on the latest version of IE.

Hi bob3160,

Let me be more specific when I have installed firefox and/or google chrome as default browser in Windows 10 can I then install Google Chrome or firefox-specific extensions/add-ons in these browsers on Windows 10 or only those Windows 10 allows? I do not have enough experience with Windows 10 to know the answer to this question.

This topic is for IOS and IE on Windows 10.
This should answer your question:
My default browser is Chrome and I'm on Windows 10:

Which is somewhat different to what your first post stated.

How can I get it on Internet Explorer?

And the answers given are that currently you can't. Only when avast are able/allowed to (or inclined to) get it in the windows store.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.3.6108 (build 24.3.8975.762) UI 1.0.801/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

I have the AOS extension on Firefox.
Your original question was about AIS and IE. Firefox was never mentioned.

Some tips for you, -midnight, you might like: https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/5202/a-few-tips-for-using-firefox-40-with-windows-10
AOS has not yet been signed by Avast in the way  Firefox wants it and that is why it is not at the moment available as an enabled Firefox add-on. But the extension is available for Google Chrome:
