    Hello, to add or manage search engines in chrome, you could try the followoing:

    -- open chrome
    -- click on wrench
    -- click on settings
    -- make sure you are in basic settings
    -- under search heading, click on manage search engines
    -- check under the default search engines heading. If you want to delete a search engine, highlight it and then click on the X next to it.
    -- you can also add search engines there

    During the uninstall process for AVG, there are several screens of options that you need to really pay attention to. One of them has to do with removing the AVG toolbar from Firefox and IE as well as returning your search settings to what they were prior to installing AVG. There are also options to remove the Virus Vault and user specific settings. Most likely when you uninstalled AVG you breezed through these pages accepting the default behavior which leaves the AVG search option as the primary search engine for all browsers installed and it also leaves the toolbar for FF and IE along with all of the user data and the Virus Vault in case you will be reinstalling AVG at a future date.
