I only use the portable version but I'm thinking that these new delays are more likely to be used to get people to download the installer version first, so the new owners can promote their AV product?

I don't think trying to sneak a full anti virus program on to unsuspecting users PC's is a good idea, nor is the wording of the statement you've quoted for the portable and slim versions.

But they own it now, and can do as they wish with their product. I just hope they keep providing the portable and slim versions in the future. I was disappointed when it was announced that Avast had bought CCleaner to be honest. I don't really like the way they try to trick people into installing stuff they didn't ask for - because they've done stuff like this in the past.

Not good at all.
