This page is SEO'd to show up when people search "avast installed itself" so I want to make it clear: Avast is a joke of a antivirus. You literally have to pay ppl to sneakily include it in their installers - that's how big a joke avast antivirus is.

You're entitled to your opinion. There are 430+ Million that disagree with you.
I'm just one of those 430+ Million.

IT tech here
Was preparing some screenshots to show "clean install of a nice utility" for my book on malwares, where I (wanted to) explain that you must not install anything without carefull verification.
CCleaner was the "good" exemple
Unlocker was the "bad" exemple

I have all the screen grabs that show NOT CHECKBOX or information on avast
But.. avast STILL TRIED TO INSTALL ITSELF  ??? (I have some protection, but still it got partially intalled, very bad garbage)

unlocker has a checkbox, allready checked, and I fought it was bad behavior.  CCleaner, THAT IS VERY BAD BEHAVIOR !!!

Uninstalled CCleaner (and what of avast that got through).
Will never use it again
Preparing big information campain agaist you, on twitter, fb and so on.

You are bad.
