Hi abdoe7,

If you click the "Oplossen" button, it will not remove the add-on, but will instead open your Avast Antivirus application to show you which add-on is causing the issue (see the attached screenshot for the screen shown in English).

I have tested the add-ons you mentioned, and it seems that it is the "Outlook Web Enhancement" add-on that has the bad reputation. I have reported this to the relevant team now to check whether the warning is correct.

BCU in this case stands for Browser Clean Up ;) This is the part of the Antivirus application that is detecting the add-on.

@ BWhit
Thanks for the clarification, I don't use the Browser Clean Up, so I wasn't familiar with it.
