SafeZone Browser icon keeps appearing in toolbar
« on: August 30, 2017, 05:32:09 PM »
Whenever I reboot my machine (or boot it up after it's been off), an icon for SafeZone Browser appears in the toolbar. I can get rid of it, of course, but it's annoying that it keeps appearing and I can't seem to find an option (within Avast) to prevent this from happening.

There must be a way an option somewhere to stop this. The question is: how do I do that?

Why not simply hide it in Windows ?
You can do so in the toolbar options.

Are you even using the SafeZone Browser ?

If not, you can uninstall it like other Avast components.
If you are, then just hide it as suggested by Eddy.
