Why has AVG replaced my default Google home page?
Question by Gill Scott /

Yesterday I had an update request window open for AVG so I clicked it. After that I find my Google Chrome opening page tab with all my favorites on it has vanished and I have an AVG search window only. I want to get back to my previous opening page on Google Chrome. How do I do that?

    I meant the 3 horizontal bars in the upper right hand corner. Everything else will be the same.

    Click on the 3 horizontal bars in the upper left hand corner. Then put cursor on “tools” then click extensions. You will see “AVG Safeguard Toolbar” un-check the box that says “enable”. Problem Solved!

    Why do you make such a change without the users’ approval? I hate it.

    in windows 7 google chrome go to bookmarks then bookmark manager then at the top is a small search box,type in avg. “avg” or “search” should pop up.right click on this and press the delete button & restart your browser.I always find that restarting your computer helps at times as well.good luck!!!!!

    because AVG hijacks your system during the install process if you’re not careful, you have to choose custom install or it will install a bunch of crap ware
