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.
