According to the developers of the well-known Avast internet security software, the number of users of the antivirus application Avast Antivirus has already exceeded 230 million.
The program is popular in any case, but there is one thing that may well displace some of its supporters, namely the obsession with which developers drive their products forward. In this article, we are going to provide you step by step guide on how to remove Avast Safezone Browser in an easy method.
After updating the free version of the antivirus program, many users found the Avast SafeZone browser installed in them, even though they did not agree to the installation of this browser. Maybe someone will find it useful, but there will be a lot of people who want to get rid of it.
How do I install the unusable Safezone Browser?
From our own experience, we have learned that there is no choice. If you still check and uncheck the box “Install Avast Safezone Browser” during the installation of the antivirus software, the system will be asked for updates. If you agree, confirm the installation of a proprietary browser.
Users who don’t need any additional programs on their device who noticed this product on their desktop want to get rid of it quickly. The only problem is that you can’t delete it in the traditional way, because the SafeZone browser doesn’t appear separately in the Control Panel under “Programs and Features” when it integrates with anti-virus protection and you can’t delete them using the CCleaner utility. No wonder, because the developers promised to work isolated from the system.
After suffering a bit, we found a solution to the problem of removing the annoying, imposed software from Safezone Browser. Users can’t figure out how to remove this browser because they don’t consider it part of an antivirus system. The secret lies in the fact that you have to start removing Avast. Don’t worry, we don’t have to uninstall the entire antivirus program, everything is not so bad.
