What's "Avast Overseer"?
« on: April 21, 2019, 09:33:22 AM »
I just made this account to ask this question, since I have no knowledge of ever actually installing avast on my PC.

I just noticed today a program called "Avast Overseer" in my task manager. I have no idea why it's here, or what it does.

So, why has it suddenly been installed on my PC without my input, and what is it doing on my PC?
