    Avast Antivirus auto installing SafeZone Browser


    This Morning removed Avast completely, rebooted Windows 10 Home 64bit PC, ran avast clear in safe mode, restarted PC, reinstalled Avast latest official version, restarted, restored backed up settings, come to find out despite I didn't select Safezone browswer during original custom install, it still installed it. Don't even know why I tried it again, should've just kept using Defender and Malwarebytes, and not even worried on retrying Avast

    Sounds like a good choice.
    Use it for a while and find out if it suits your needs.

    Nothing is fool-proof. It depends on the user's habit of internet surfing etc.

    I use Windows Defender as real-time protection, and Malwarebytes free edition as on-demand protection.
    Foe 2+ years, I do not have any security issues.

    You have to find a setup most suitable to your needs.
    What works for others does not necessarily work for you.

    yeah will work on that later on today, might just be used to Avast fast full scanning, and Defender seems slower in that regards, but i'm sure I can get used to it. Just don't really like Avast now that suddenly added Safezone browser autoly after clean install of it early this morning.
