This is happening now and more often
    I think I said that..

    That's because if your computer specification is right, Bitdefender Total Security blocked it.
    You can check this by searching for Avast remnants left behind.

    if avast was part of ccleaner like in the one screenshot i would see the option to install it or not regardless of what security software i'm running.

    Perhaps like myself as well as others, you might have missed it.....you can always check by looking for Avast remnants.

    I just finally updated Ccleaner on my laptop(I haven't used it in a while), and the Avast ad was still there, but now it is unselected by default... at least with this download.

    I downloaded it from their Builds Page.

    I thought I would post this in all fairness, as the ad/option was never the problem for me, just that it was preselected, and could cause less cautious users, a headache.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    Just my opinion, but I think that an Antivirus should not be a free add on option to any installer, the fact that this could be set auto selected is a disgrace, but even the option to check an option to install an antivirus is not sensible as an un-informed or accidental choice can have disastrous consequences. Who can tell what will happen if the user has another AV installed and that set-up turns out to be incompatible with avast and that leads to a loss of valuable data - Is Avast prepared to meet the users costs for recovery.

    An AV system is such an important and deeply integrated piece of software that it has to be a conscious choice of the User - Windows ships with reasonable options for system protection, so there is no justification for force feeding the user for this , by all means use Ccleaner as an optional add on with an Avast install, or even integrate the functionality into the avast package

    Ccleaner is an optional item that most users will install after the system security is selected and set so should not provide any chance for accidental damage due to unplanned installation

What do you think will happen when the final version is released?
I have read most of all the threads here and just wondered when the final version is ready to release and I say yes to the update to my desktop PC what will it do? I know it will use my previous Windows Prod ID to install but wondered if it...
Installation and Upgrade
Released version
So when this "10" is released will it be as straight forward as putting in a legal s/n or will it have to be wiped and reinstalled.
