Windows 7: Why does www.avast.eu take me to the Avira website?

This is an "unoffcial" answer from Avira, maybe?

Vincent, it is a pity that you (i.e. Avast) never bothered to start a domain transfer for avast.eu for more than three years now. Like we did with avast.info in the past, you remember? And I have stated numerous times that I am willing to transfer that domain to Avast. But it should be you initiating that transfer, that is how a secure domain transfer between two entities work.
And thank you for the chance to get things straight: Ive redirected avast.eu to avast.com in 2007 for two years or so, when the Avast guys wanted that domain. Me, as the domain owner, Ive never received a transfer request for that domain and told you so a couple of times. Given all the protection I was giving to your domain name – and paying for the domain name – I felt that you guys are not interested in that domain which was mid 2009. So I put it back to point to us.
Without a transfer request made by your registrar to my registrar nothing will happen. This is how a secure domain transfer works between two entities. It is not about being willing to release that domain, it is less understanding how internet and domain registration in general works. However, the domain avast.eu was already deleted by me a couple of weeks ago, so it will free to be taken by anyone as soon as its released by the registry. Pity. Case closed.

Sounds as though someone got a call from someone else's Legal representatives

That would fit well with Avast's email to me stating they were actively pursuing the matter
