The current situation is that the third checkbox is still created and checked by default after upgrade.

I will check this again in a few days.
Enough of this abuse. Your question has been more than answered.
Even if you don't like the answer, it was answered. Move on. If you can't move on, move over.
It's a simple choice. Stop polluting this forum and threat.

You did lie. I will quote you:

Again - if you opted out of this any time before, we are respecting your very decision even after splitting the consent in settings in this latest version.

This is patently untrue. As has been demonstrated by several users. That you do not admit this is very troubling. It means you are not trustworthy in your communication with users here on the forum. We cannot be sure that what you say is in fact true... Otherwise why would anyone ever believe anything you say again?

You are taking this one sentence out of context. What I have written in the very original post [https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=228911.msg1515948#msg1515948]
was basically this:

= there used to be 1 checkbox to cover 2 things.
When separating them, we kept one of the new ones OFF
("respecting the choice that the user has done in the past regarding the Jumpshot data sharing (now called Allow usage data to be shared with 3rd parties for analysis and trends, business and marketing)")
and the second was set ON by default for all.
("We decided to put the GA tracking checkbox (now called Allow usage data to be shared with 3rd parties for analysis of product performance and usage) as checked by default ")


In the following post [https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=228911.msg1515972#msg1515972]
I was digging into the difference between these two. The sentence you quoted "Again - if you opted out of this any time before, we are respecting your very decision even after splitting the consent in settings in this latest version" was related to business and marketing purposes data sharing, the letter one I was describing.

I can gladly say we have reviewed the approach after users here flagged it, I can happily admit if I do (or a company does) a mistake, I can suppose we are in disagreement because we misunderstood ourselves in the writing... but I couldn't admit I was willingly lying when I was not - just to please you - sorry. At this point we must be boring the hell out of all other people here - so once again, thanks for engaging in the discussion, the amended product behavior is in the making and will be released soon.

You do not dictate my speech or what the content of this thread is. I will continue to check if the announced amendment wil actually happen. If you don't like that, move on or move over ;)

but I couldn't admit I was willingly lying when I was not - just to please you - sorry.

"willingly" was never a factor.

I redid the whole upgrade just before my post, and it DID show the third checkbox checked. So...

A bunch of posts back and forth on the same issue over and over, meanwhile EmoHobo and I politely ask about programs running on startup and we get ignored.  ???

To reiterate:

After this update upon startup PING.EXE and TRACERT.EXE both run at startup, is this happening to anyone else?

I'm running a Windows 7 64bit machine and have never witnessed this until after I updated today.

Edit: Just to silence the voice in my head, did a full virus scan and came back totally clean.

YES. I was just about to post about this. I did a thorough boot-time scan and separate malware scan. Then I did a system restore to before the last MS updates and some other updates. After [reinstalling] every one thing I rebooted and those programs did not start. Then as soon as I updated avast again those popped up. I think I saw NETSTAT.EXE on startup too but it was gone from the task manager too quickly to be sure. All of them were in all caps like that too. From what I googled they are legitimate programs in the system32 folder, but are supposed to be manually started by the user if needed. I would like to know what the issue is.

Using avast free on W7 Home Premium with SP1.

W7 64 bit for both of us it seems.

I wonder if that is the key factor here.

I just updated and the third checkbox was checked for me, too. I always check these settings after updating as this is not the first time it has happened.

Hello madi4

idea for new notification center was: 3 categories
1. Alerts = new items, needs user attention
2. Activities = solved items: scan where user saw results, or items where user clicked on Got it button. This can be supposed as dismiss. We are reconsidering the name for this one - for example history can be a better name...
3. Ignored Issues = hope this one is clear. In same cases you can select an item to be ignored
