Asyn, the Safeprice and Online Security are not listed as installed in my components, there's an option to add them. As I said, I opted out of them during Avast's installation. I'm talking about that little popup in the upper right corner of my newly installed Chrome that says Avast wants to install Safe Price or Online Security on it.
However, since I haven't gotten such popups more than once per product after I declined the installation, I'm assuming this is normal like sebastian183 said. Still, I think it's bad practise for an antivirus to behave like adware almost, even if it is the free version. If you can't say for sure whether this is or isn't default behavior for Avast Free Antivirus, I would at least like to know if this has happened to anyone else with Chrome who's maybe reading this.
thank you for the replies so far.
