Although now I am using Opera, I'm really liking it so far... .

Col + 0 Votes Should I reinstall AVG first Col? JADavis9 2 years ago I don't have AVG and in the recent past I removed ALL search engines other than Google at v Manage Search Providers. And I look there and that list still only shows Google. At Add/Remove the only AVG thing that I find is AVG Security Toolbar but when I click Change/Remove it pops Uninstaller Error - An error occurred while trying to remove AVG Security Toolbar. It may have already been uninstalled. Would you like to remove AVG Security Toolbar from the Add or Remove programs list? Yes No. I clicked Yes. I do remember in the last day or so seeing some new AVG toolbar on my IE and getting rid of it. I probably got into this mess when someone had me us AVG PC Tuneup to fix a mess with my slow running tablet. My tablet is running better than ever with this help. So what should I do now to get rid of this still page that mysteriously loads for no apparent reason on every new tab? Will I need to install something from AVG at www.avg.com to fix this mess and then uninstall some stuff? Will it be free or will they want to charge me something? I don't see a cost on their site. + 0 Votes Check Internet Options Nunob Updated - 2 years ago On the General Tab about halfway down for Search Settings.

There is a Settings link that pops a single page that has a checked box that you just uncheck to that the stupid AVG Secure Search page doesn't appear on new tabs. But it doesn't work for me and I've tried it LOTS of times already. I just joined their forum and posted my dilemma and asked for help. I even had some tech support chat guy give me a link to run some "remove everything AVG" and it failed. Probably since I uninstalled AVG and the toolbar a few days ago. So I'm just left with this stupid page that pops on my new tabs and I can't seem to get rid of it.
