Avast Software

Did you push Avast software to me?  Turned on my computer yesterday and there it was.  Haven't touched it since I have no idea how it got on my system.

In my own experience, the only AV product that comes preloaded on HP PCs is McAfee.  


You might have got it as a side-effect of downloading something else, as those often HIDE the installation of  PUP (Potentiially Unwanted Products) and you get it as a surprise.
