    I have a search engine problem

    I have AVG-paid version. I have Google Chrome that I am using. I have selected the Google Chrome be my default search engine, but AVG's isearch takes control. I did go to where it is checked and unchecked it...only for it to take control when I open a new tab yet again. I cleared the cache for the last 4 weeks. This problem has only been happening the last couple of days. How do I stop AVG's isearch from taking over my computer?!??

    Go to Control Panel-Internet Options- Change your homepage

    Check and see what is listed as your home page.  Example: If you want Yahoo as your home page just put http://yahoo.com      You do that for google, etc.

    I'm really not impressed with AVG at all. Switch to a much better antivirus. The Avira Home Edition has been serving me for a couple of years now and it kept my computer safe from all sort of threats without bugging me at all. Try it out. Good luck and God bless!

    Hi Lady. I had AVG virus protection as a trial and I too am having problems with it. The trial finished and I keep getting pop up´s telling me a programme is trying to open ( AVG) out of protected mode, I also keep getting them telling me my trial period has now expired, it drives me mad because you click on the red X which should cancel the message only to have it pop up again a second later, the other day it was so bad I had to shut down my PC a number of times before it stopped happening.

    It is just because, you have installed AVG antivirus and selected AVG search as your default search. I also had same problem so I uninstalled AVG.

    Instead of asking on here and having everyone (all with good intent) giving you different answers go type "Ask Leo" into your browser and sign up for his free newsletter. He is a guru of computer info and you can ask him ?'s and get SOLID answers to all computer related issues. He's saved my sanity so maybe he can help save yours. Good luck!!
