AVG - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
AVG Secure Search Software hijacks my homepage

This is a Complaint / Review about AVG.

I downloaded some free software that had AVG attached to it. It offered me the AVG Toolbar and search engine. I unchecked it but the AVG installed anyway. I went through the uninstall process and although I was able to get rid of the toolbar, the search engine hijacked my homepage and wouldn’t allow me to reset it. I got in contact with the company today and asked them to walk me through removing their software and they were not able to help me. They had me use their own website’s remover tool which didn’t work at all. When I asked to speak to the tech’s supervisor, I was put on hold for about 10 minutes. While I was on hold, I Googled how to remove their software and found my way to Microsoft’s FIXIT program. I ran it and it completely got rid of the AVG software.
