I spoke too soon on my fist post. So, after you uninstall AVG it is gone from your hard drive, but AVG had also installed AVG as a start up page in Google Chrome. So this is how you get rid of that, you to the upper right corner of the Chrome page where three bars are located (on the current version, but older versions have a wrench) click that and go to 'Settings' then find 'On Start Up' then click the blue link 'Set Pages' find the AVG start up and on the right hand side of that box is an 'X' click that until it is gone, and no more AVG starting up along with Chrome.
Uninstalling/re-installing Chrome also manages to clear this up, but that is much more drastic than doing it this way.
AVG is offered on many freeware down loads, and if you don't catch it and don't say no to the install you now have the AVG Tool Bar on your browser. Seems simple enough to get rid of you just use Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall a program and uninstall it, but for me this didn't work. This tutorial will explain how I finally got AVG off my computer:
How I solved the non deleting AVG Tool Bar.
1. Install Revo Uninstaller if you don't already have it. FREE version
2. Now start the brower where AVG is installed, this should also start the annoying AVG with its tab.
3. Start Revo Uninstaller and choose from the top menu "Hunter Mode".
4. A cross hair transparent box will show up, drag n drop this cross hair box on to the AVG tab that has appeared.
5. Revo will now ask you are you sure you want to delete this program and all files associated with it "Say Yes"
6. Then make sure you close any browser that has AVG installed on it other wise this will not work.
7. Follow the prompts that Revo asks, you want to delete the bold text registry items and get rid of files.
8. Once you get rid of all the files your browser is gone as well. You then re-install the your browser and all is well.
9. I get rid of the browser through Revo because that insures you got all of the AVG software possible.
I am not saying AVG is bad because I really don't know, but I have the security software of my choice already on my computer and don't need another one.
