Avast spying w/out permission

Found out today using a program that autoshows get http
requests in real time that avast CONTINUES to send data even
when web scanning is disabled and web rep turned off to avast  
to report reputation of web pages.

Previously I was suspicious of the intrusive nature of avast  
scanning and
now I have direct evidence that it continues even if the user has  
shut off the
web scanning feature.

I wonder what else avast is collecting they did not tell me about?
So their turnoff feature means nothing since the program continues  
to send web page reports to the user even when this feature is  
turned off.

If you don't trust them, don't use their program.
