Reply To: Avast has turned evil
Have you looked through the settings of Avast? I don’t have email ads in my emails,but I have disabled them in the past.
Settings->Active Protection->Mail Shield->Gear (Settings)->Behavior->General and set your preferences.
I believe, during the Install, you can remove some of the “Bloatware” if you don’t want it. Since you have installed all the options at install, you should be able to go to Add/Remove Programs and Modify the install, if running windows.
Also, they have a real good Forums for assistance.
Hope this helps.
