Today I got an AVG update request and I checked the box. Now my Firefox and Google home pages are gone (and my favorite sites with them).  How do I get them back?

    I wrote an article about getting rid of Chrome hijackers, which you should check out and make sure AVG didn't take control anywhere else.

    In Google chrome: Open setting tab >> in On startup tab >> check Open a specific page or set of pages by clicking on Set Pages.

    In Mozilla Firefox: Go to Tools >> Option >> General >> and check your home page link from home page text box.

    Thanks
