Cannot say I blame you there.  I would also be upset.  And will be, if this lands on my AIS.
Paid software should not carry ads.
Especially 3rd party ads.

Ads?
Isn't it free support from a reseller? ???

I would find that unacceptable even in the free program to get ads for 3rd party stuff. No problem with an ad trying to promote the paid products of Avast Software, or I would be blocking avastUI in my firewall.

Though in the AIS I think that the avastUI connects for other things other than loading the ad in the free version (as Logos has mentioned before).

Sounds like something McAfee or Symantec would try and do.
