Not enough things removed, Clenup and Passwords  should go as well.

Also, can you please finally remove the idiotic requirement to register free version?

I agree with this why do we need to register the Free version?

It surely can't be hard to input your email and name once a year.

I'll return as soon as new cloud based VM scanning gets into the beta branch. Still a lot of things to fix though, but it's moving...

Can't be far from your favourite AV....I see  ;D
It's like an old girlfriend...he drops her but misses her later. LOL I understand! ;)

It sure is hard enough for tens of non-technical people bothering me over and over again with their "expiring" AV.

Not to mention the "scam" window trying to hoist the paid version on them that scares many of them as hell.

Remote assistance was actually a useful feature.
I always knew that if the person with the problem had Avast on their system,
I could get remote access to help them fix their problem.Instead of removing something useful, why not fix any problems in that module.

Even though the Rescue Disc function works, there is still a problem.
This small video shows you what it is:

I diagree.

An anti-virus doesn't need remote assistance - there's many free software like TeamViewer that do the joh.

The same can be said for the Passwords and Cleanup module where the latter seems to do more hard than good.

You're missing the point.
Those that need help aren't computer literate. Asking them to install something else is a chore.
Using something they already have makes life much easier. A password Manager is also a Security Tool.
Cleanup certainly is not. :)
