    Looks like this repairs the DLL loading vulnerability that is the hot topic this month.

    Added with Version 5 is the pre-checked option to install Google Chrome, the Google browser. If you are downloading Avast and do not want the install, you need to uncheck the pre-checked options:

    Nah, that's been there for quite some time. Near the beginning of the start of version 5 - months ago. And it's the Google Chrome browser, not a toolbar.

    Thanks for the correction. I didn't read the pre-checked option close enough. I'll edit my post in case someone doesn't read far enough. :)
