Hello 147all,

Can you please check you are using latest AVG 2012 program version 2012.0.2126?
- Open AVG User Interface -> Click "Support" in right-top corner -> look for "AVG Version:"

Did you install AVG Safe Search? (results in Google search are marked by AVG checkmark or it is available in AVG User Interface -> LinkScanner -> Enable Search-Shield)

Which browser are you using?

Thank you

Hello 147all,

New version AVG 2012.0.2126 (alias Service Pack 1) is cumulative program update with new features and improvements (few examples at this forum thread), and bug fixes. But if your AVG is running fine (no crashes or inaccurate behavior), there aren't big needs to update by repair installation without waiting for common program update.

Thank you
