I use Defender. Whatever A/V I use is nothing to do with them and they have a bloody cheek trying to inflict their stuff on to me.

I do not run a third party av. In CC I clicked on Check for updates, no Avast splash. I was taken to piriform. Mind you I have disabled the nag to update, so my click was not from the popup reminder. Since the virus I am comfortable with running one version behind for example I am still on Free 5.37.6309 64bit.

D4\/!d I didn't have any problem with 5.37, the avast! thing only started up on the latest update 5.38 so if you are like us on Defender check your splash screen when you next update. If I'm right and I suspect I am you'll get the avast option on it and it comes preset to install unless you override it.

True, I have no real issues with them offering it as an option, but setting install as the default, Not Good :xmad:

I thought I would upgrade to ver 5.38.

I sometimes use File Hippo, their link offered me this screen, note the tick box bottom left.

Sorry I cannot reduce image size (no handles).

Anyway I then went direct to the piriwhatnot site, I often do that. Their Install box looks the same with a Yes box already ticked. Grrhh.

btw I would have chosen the Customise option under the blue Install button, I typically do select the Customise option with any software.

I am still on 5.37 ftb.

It would be nice if customize gave you control of the avast! install, but it doesn't it's just the same as it always was and if as I did you click customise without reading the splash screen you see nothing, assume all is as normal then wonder what the hell has gone wrong as the popups appear telling you your security has been deactivated.

Take care and look before you install. I was offered Chrome, so unticked the install box.

I use CCleaner Professional and when an update is available I get an automatic pop up containing the link to update it. Via this route it has never yet brought with it any other software.

@Geriatic Teenager

I also use update from C Cleaner and also on that no other pups offered.  This is a bit of a nuisance as many do it for the profit. Seeing as 21st Century is dedicated to Greed is Good - Gordon Gecko has much to answer for :censored2:

 

@Hansom I today am setting up Chrome - as can now close off the "spying" and I use Mask Me - have done for 15 years for passwords and Firefox Quantum wont allow it nor other so called legacy things like IDM also paid life sub and used it for years fast downloads and reliable etc so Chrome take both.  And yes I know can so to Blur but bad enough setting up Chrome.

 

When our once not a favourite of mine PM Malcolm Fraser now popped his clogs said "Life wasn't meant to be easy"  I reckon he put the kybosh on all of us in the west. :sign_groan:

IMPORTANT FIX FOR CHROME
