kenny556, are not you the one who recommended us to use Kaspersky Security Cloud, Kaspersky Security Cloud deleted 2 or 3 files from my windows without permission.
I want to restore these files but i don't know how. I know you are just a customer and you won't help me. it is okay.
Looks like i am going back to Avast. At least it deletes file to virus chest and I restore them, or it asks for your permission.
yes yes I know, it spies on people and it started to become untrusted software, but i have no choice....
Don't recommend anything until you be really sure of it.

avast! has been asking for data sharing permission during install for a very long time now. You could always disable things in Privacy panel. Have done so since version 5.0 ages ago...

hum.... >:(

I have just reset to the default settings, the boxes were unchecked before, they are all checked after. :-[
If I had not seen the warning that offered me the VPN, I would not have realized that I was also sharing data with third parties  ;)
I've always been clear in unchecking the boxes, avast didn't warn me and didn't give me a clear choice today.
