Avast! Free Anti-virus… Software that grabs your personal information tracks much of everything you do and sends to Avast’s databases. Tries to install Dropbox by default during install, has 3 nag screens trying to talk you out of uninstalling, then one last redirection asking why you uninstalled... then in a last ditch attempt to get money from you they recommend installing Google Chrome

If you look up the meaning of Malware, then you will notice that there is very little difference between malware and this application. I would like to have done a more in-depth review, but the anxiety while it was installed on my computer was to much.

To give Avast! a break it does have a warning on the installation about some of this shady data collection stuff, but not the nagging.

Seriously before installing this software have a look at the privacy policy and screenshots below, and turn Avast CommunityIQ feature off!

Screenshots: 

Avast! Pre-installation warning... ok this is a worry.. are they just being honest?
Interface looks a little empty.. where is everything?
Ok this looks good, not sure how this will help me though.
Wow it is some of the data collect from other peoples installations.
Time to uninstall this software it scares me.
Ok I guess they don't want me to unistall.
Just unistall already!
What the heck, they just want more and more information.
Go away Avast! faster!
