Avast Premium adds bloatware to browsers
« on: June 05, 2023, 09:28:26 AM »
The latest version of Avast Premium Security adds bloatware to browsers with seemingly no way to disable it using the Avast UI. This is unacceptable for a paid "premium" product and needs to be fixed immediately.

this is different update channel, it was released as uupdate. Check for uupdates should be done every 4 hours or you can try to speed it up by restarting your PC (there is a check also after each PC restart).
