Should I act on this Avast! warning about a browser add-on



The message box says Microsoft.NET Framework Assistant is a browser add-on which has a bad reputation among Avast users, and asks me if I want to remove it. The box says browser add-ons are sometimes a privacy risk, and can also affect browser performance.

I have not intentionally downloaded or activated anything-on recently.

I am inclined to click the choice which says "Remove Bad Add-on" unless someone here at KF warns me not to.
