I totally agree that this default setting should be off by default on paid avast versions.

That's the crazy part, annoying those that have already purchased the product is hardly going to endear them avast.

I'll create a thread in the ECC regarding this.

Despite this being reported on 20 March 2017, 12 days ago and no response from avast.

Much less purchase something else resulting from a spam ad on their system. Ads should be off by default on paid versions.
