I updated Avast just yesterday by clicking "update" in the Avast panel.

It installed both Safe Zone and Safe Price automatically.

Avast's own update did the install silently. I had no opportunity to opt out of anything but installing Chrome. 

And no thank you: I am not willing to download a tool from anyone I don't know.  IOBit Uninstaller gets rid of Avast's unwanted add-ons very cleanly.

Or you could stop trying to absolve Avast for doing objectionable things.

Because that'd work, too.

I have not said that avast did not install what you claim it installed    ;)

If you search the forum you find many posts/complaints about this

And I did not say you had claimed they don't install those things.

I said you were trying to absolve them for it.

If this forum is just for saying nice things about Avast, and not taking them to task for what they do wrong, then it is not a forum at all. It's nothing but a bully pulpit.

It looks like many people are fed up with Avast, then.

Did you save your set-up logs? They can be found in the avast file location.
If you did let us know and we will be more than happy to contact the proper avast team member to look at them for you.
The set-up log can tell a lot if you know what you are looking for. An avast team member knows how to do that.

Right click the avast desktop icon>click "open file location">scroll down to and right click "setup" and save to a location you can find it as needed.
It will be a text file.
