Yes, the pirates are totally optional.  ;)

If you look at the Add-Remove-Change menu, you'll see it's treated as an additional "language", like French, Italian, or you-name-it, where you can switch back and forth between whichever ones you've installed.  Strictly optional, as already pointed out, and just for the fun of it.

The question's already been raised as to how long it will continue to be available for download, so you might as well get it now if you're even the least bit interested.  I rather doubt it'll still be available when 5.1 comes out, but who knows?

Intel Atom D2700, 2 gig RAM, Win 7 x64 SP1 & IE-11, Firefox 51.0
(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent

Got it and love it but then I have always been a fan of pirate movies.

Thanks, Avast team!

The tiny bit of a room is my back bedroom and is where my computer lives, as it and the associated junk (sorry useful bits I may need one day) have taken over the room.

Yes...you are correct.  You do not need to install it.

hey thanks for the tip ;D...and it shouldn't even be there at all if you ask me, promoting security software this way is a bit of a shame...and seeing "adults" adopt the "feature" is another type of shame...not mentioning those who find it funny, referring to "humor" etc... >>> this is called regression ;)
