Why can't Avast come with PUP automatically turned on?

Hey everyone I, AntivirusGeek, would like Avast to turn on detection of PUP during its installation. The reason being is simply because it makes the product more effective and since non-pro users don't really interfere with the settings.The PUP setting which is set on OFF by default will make the PC vulnerable to threats.
Here's an example, I pushed in a flash drive and Avast detected some threats but when I looked in memory there were active threats in memory.Only when I turned on the Scan For PUP feautre then Avast popped up and notified me that PUP's had been detected and quarantined.

Please work on this Avast. happy
