I ran my Uninstaller program.
This thread is specifically about the Avast offer, not any Google offer. While it does not reveal any plans, it appears to be something that Avast wants to leverage. I do hope you've fixed the problem because I'd hate to ditch a good program for bad business practices. I understand your point-of-view since people are getting your program free-of-cost, you have the right of adding any third-party offer you'd like with your program.

Windows is completely unworkable without it.

Piriform said it worked with law enforcement and cut off communication to the servers before any malicious commands were detected.

Bundling brings the ability for developers to increase the rate of distribution.
I would have opted out had I been given a notice, because I like to choose what gets put on my computer. Avast announced that it plans to run Piriform products separately from current Avast products. However, this recent Avast bundle is especially ironic because Avast is supposed to be a cybersecurity company that prevents software from installing without the user's permission. It seems a lot cleaner to me. The screen will not be displayed until the offer content is ready to be displayed. No real difference with the paid version. I wonder whether C-Cleaner will be able to clean the crap that Avast Antivirus puts on your system? In some cases no installer offer will be displayed.

You need to go down in the install folder and nuke a couple of files thankfully some people have identified them, and it works. A couple of weeks ago, I suddenly started receiving notices about new postings to Piriform forum threads. We all know many applications which moved that way and I know not one which improved when in most cases it lost its soul and inherent qualities in the transaction.
