If you at one time had the Avast SafeZone Browser installed, it is now being replaced by Avast's Secure Browser.
Stopping an install in mid stream is never a good idea. If you want to make sure it's not installed I suggest you do the following:
Download the Secure Browser Removal tool from here, https://download.avastbrowser.com/avast_secure_browser_uninstall.exe
