You are lucky that it installed.  I had a problem so I uninstalled it, and now Windows will  not allow me to reinstall it.   Stupid Windows 10 update.
Maybe if you explained the problem you might get some help.

This happened to me a couple of days ago....AND THEN it assigned Avast Secure Browser as the default app for everything!

Privacy Breach?

Data breach?

Breach of contract?


Turns out the use of the pirate terminaology was quite a propos, as it happened!


Am now considering cancelling my subscription to ALL AVAST services.

You probably missed unchecking the prechecked box for the install.
I personally hate prechecked but, I always do custom installs and check for those things.
