Ask.com homepage

I have been a big supporter of Avant. I have used it for the last couple of years. I have even donated twice to its development.

I just downloaded and installed version 11.7 b46 and Installed it on my home machine and laptop.

I do NOT appreciate you changing my home page to ask.com. This should be an option to "uncheck" during the install if you want to include it. You should not force it on us.

If the next update has the same issue, I will be abandoning avant.

Sorry, there was a problem with the installer which caused certain basic settings (home page, default search engine, etc) of some users to reset to default.

Nitehood, sorry for bothering you. The developer designed this way in last release. He will stop changing the default settings without prompting you to accept next time.

Errr Jasmine, what on earth has made him do that? (and PLEASE do not tell me we're going to see Ask's rubbish in there from now on - that's definately not a good thing)

maybe before the installation finish, there should be a part somewhere where it ask the user what is his preferred homepage or search engine.
