Avira Privacy Pal found thousands of browsing traces on my Win 10 laptop computer, not all of which are threatening. Had I ticked all of the boxes, and allowed the cleaning process to proced, I presume all those remnants would have been removed. I opted instead for the Basic level of privacy, which resulted in a jump in personal privacy, from 5 %, to 12 %. Fortunately, the Personalized preferences setting allows for more refined privacy settings than the Basic.
You'll notice that both, Privacy Pal and the Opera Browser, have been installed. I'm not sure if Avira chose to install a new Opera (as an altered and more secured version of Opera). Maybe it just "secured" already the version I happened to be using while downloading Privacy Pal. Also, Avira, in the screen below, offers other products that may or may not be free. I clicked on "Close".
