I turned on my computer today only to find that Avast had installed its own browser called safezone and a stupid price suggesting module called safeprice. I'm considering dumping avast in favor of an anti-virus that doesn't act like malware, but before I do that, I was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this in the past and if so, how to get that off my computer w/o removing avast as a whole.
Could you uninstall it completely and reinstall ?

If it helps, the setup on my PC is Avira free antivirus (for realtime protection) and Malwarebytes (for scanning regularly). Never had a virus and never paid a penny !

Addendum - Avira has never tried to impose bloatware on me post-install (so not during an update or anything). The only thing they tried was a toolbar during install, but it was a simple 'yes' or 'no' option.
