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.

    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
