Dunno about details. When we are talking AV bundled with Google stuff that is.

That's what I thought.  ::)

There's nothing bundled with google stuff here. Read the posts before typing.

Just to clear that: when installing the free version, you are asked if you wish to install google chrome. You select "no", that's it. The other side of the deal is: avast is contained in the google pack. What's wrong with that?

In the paid versions: nothing. No question, no chrome, no google.

All I know is before that first install no Google services but afterwards Google services. I know it was off before because that's something I monitor closely. I don't explain them I just report. Like I said, probably a glitch seeing as how in that early release all kinds of weird stuff was going on.

I upgraded from Avast 4.8.1368 to v 5.0.377.  During the install, one had the choice of clicking on either of 2 choices: install google Chrome or not install google Chrome.  I chose no, and there is no Google products on my computer nor has there been.  The Avast install respects the user's choice.  The Google Desktop was never part of the offer.
