The folks to be angry at are Bluefox. You also should have used the custom install of their program to avoid installing bundled software.
Install something like Unchecky to prevent unwanted installs. https://unchecky.com/

Actually, I doubt Bluefox is bundling Avast out of the goodness of their hearts for altruistic reasons.  Avast has sanctioned this kind of behavior somewhere.

Watch your language please this is a family friendly forum.
What do you mean by "the same thing happened to me?
Did you also install something that came bundled and because you didn't use a custom install,
it was installed on your system?
