It's actually the contrary. The popup says that you HAVE INSTALLED Chrome together with avast (Chrome is offered during avast installation - it's been like this for almost 2 years now), but have not actually USED it. It's not asking you to install it (you most likely already have it - as you can check e.g. in the Control Panel; at least that's what the avast records say).

I can discredit the bolded section above. Not only have I used Google Chrome, I was using it when the pop-up advertising Google Chrome showed up.
I had this come up and I'm sure it said something about installing Chrome. I guess I could be wrong. I was also using Chrome at the time.
