Why didn't you just update from the UI, then you would be unlikely to revisit all this crap.

SHOUTING isn't going to make any difference, I rather doubt they will stop just because you are SHOUTING.

thanks for the feedback. It was a coincidence that you installed Avast and then was updated to the new version and we also offer browser for existing users after an update. We will adjust it so we don't bother you that close after the installation as it doesn't make sense.
