Why did this stupid Anti Virus installed itself????
« on: May 28, 2020, 03:52:17 PM »
I was just doing my stuff on my Computer and suddenly I see this message from "Avast Free Antivirus" and it says "Thanks for installing (our stupid) Avast Free Antivirus Over 400 million users trust Avast to protect their computers and secure their privacy. (What about the other 7.6 billion people?)" anyways I don't want this (stupid) Anti Virus, can someone help me get this thing off forever off of this PC, Also this is the second time it happened.

Do you have a older version of CCleaner installed?

I have no CCleaner or whatever that is, and I know how to uninstall, but I want to do it forever.

CCleaner is the only program i know of that installed avast if you updated a old version or installed it new (this has been said to have been fixed in later versions?) maybe there are other programs that offer avast also now?

If some other program installed Avast it's because you didn't pay attention to the checkboxes while installing. It's not the antivirus that is stupid. Maybe just keep it? It's the best free antivirus.

The Antivirus is very fun when you are playing a game and suddenly "Avast free AntiVirus blocked something" and the game was blocekd, its just like Avg and McAfee, the only thing AntiVirus want is my money.

Avast has one of the best Game Modes, if you use it you will never be interrupted while gaming and you will have the best performance you can with your hardware. How did Avast blocked your game? That is strange.
