Re: Avast 7 installs Chrome When the installer isn't corrupted I can watch out for them myself, but when it comes to others who need a basic av I can't recommend software that might try to sneak in 3rd party software. I understand other free software already does this, but in many cases you have no choice like you must always make sure you don't get the extra payload from flash updates for example.
Most people won't manually scan their downloads, and you know as well as I do some people will let their trialware av run out, then never replace it/update it with a license, then think it's still protecting them with out dated definitions. Same goes for windows updates for some, as some might never actually install windows updates unless they are on automatic. Some people just don't care to take the time to learn. If it wasn't for other factors I think these people would be better served with tablets, that is if it usually didn't require a computer to update the firmware for security issues.

Ya, you can't save people from themselves.
That said, it is better IMHO they have AV protection and perhaps get Chrome or Ask that is pretty benign than not to have any protection and be the next botnet zombie. (ya riiight, they'll find a way to get FUBAR anyways)
The simpler computers have become to use, the dumber the users get. The majority of users don't "know computers" and don't want to. So, there is nothing you can do except to put the info. out there, protect yourself and just let them fail.
