AVG Hijacked my Browser and Keeps Changing my Homepage

Do you need to strip AVG search from Hijacking your homepage in ALL of your browsers like I did? Well, the Malware provider, AVG actually does have a tool to remove this "feature."

Follow this link to remove the automatic AVG search monster:

Scroll to where it says " Disabling AVG Secure Search after removing the AVG Security Toolbar"

You have to do it separately for each browser and they have downloads for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome.

I can't believe AVG has gone this far.

There are a few other really good antivirus programs out there. My top recommendations now are:

1. BitDefender (No Nag Screens)
3. Microsoft Security Essentials
3. Avira
4. Avast
5. MalwareBytes (To be used in conjunction with a antivirus program from this list)

I wish these free antivirus places that had sales like MalwareBytes (MBAM) - $20 for a lifetime antivirus on 1 PC. I'd actually pay it, like I do for "MBAM."
