What features, options are removed? @Captain Awesome can you please give us more information?

+Remote assistance removed for good
This is removed. Why?
After Tavis Ormandy's exploit over GeekBuddy. So Avast also afraid of being exploited by him, then they removed the feature itself.

They should remove the secureline vpn from free installers, it doesn't make sense an they should remove the "Free registration" as well. Can you please tell them if you have good contacts?

This Free registration is done only for 1 time for 1 year and then it is not a problem but many of forum member report it but no official confirmation from Avast!.

Again you have a choice to not install.

Yes I have a choice for uninstall, but it is hidden under small characters. Use default installation (next-next-netx-finish) and you have some useless things on your PC, even paid one like Secureline.. didn't we install free version?

As you said, even there is no official confirmation from Avast!. Then why it is there? People think "My AV is expiring...What should I do?"
The registration is dirty marketing to make the user think "buy another one year".. it is not just easy to enable 1 year free avast. You have to click correct option while you are doing it. Please understand me, you know what I am talking about

I know you are not from them :) I just want from you tell them these words.
I am talking about Avast's marketing.. they make the user think "I should buy a key for my AV" so Avats keep this registration things in free version. Please read it again ;)
