And what would be your alternative to Avast?
AVAST has been a mess for the last two years. I quit them back then and switched to Sandboxie. Far superior.... runs your browser in a sandbox. Not an AV -- a different method of security. See my post about it here. Disclaimer: I have no personal vested interest in Sandboxie except as a monumentally satisfied user.

FYI if you download and install Avast or any available app from Ninite you won't obtain any unwanted installations.

Ninite will

  • start working as soon as you run it
  • not bother you with any choices or options
  • install apps in their default location
  • say no to toolbars or extra junk
  • install 64-bit apps on 64-bit machines
  • install apps in your PC's language or one you choose
  • do all its work in the background
  • install the latest stable version of an app
  • skip up-to-date apps
  • skip any reboot requests from installers
  • use your proxy settings from Internet Explorer
  • download apps from each publisher's official site
  • verify digital signatures or hashes before running anything
  • work best if you turn off any web filters or firewalls
  • save you a lot of time!

Not pushing anything!!! So many installers are now including as you stated bloatware. Simply, this site doesn't!
