How to get AVG off of my homepage?

Asked by: 214 views Computer Security

I don’t know when I downloaded AVG, but it suddenly appeared on my computer the other day, and now it’s on my homepage AND WON’T GET OFF. My browser is Chrome, I’ve already uninstalled the program in Control Panel, and Chrome says my homepage is Google. So why is AVG still my homepage, and how do I get it off?!

    The AVG home page is associated with the program but not part of the program so when you uninstall the program the homepage stays the same. You need to click on the wrench icon located at the upper right of chrome and go to settings, then under stat up click on open a specific page or set of pages and then click on set pages and put in the right URL for the home page you want.

    Hope this helps,

    AVG may have been bundled in with other software you may have installed-this is very common. Firstly you should run the AVG removal tool to completely wipe out AVG, once you have done that then you go into the Google Chrome settings (click on the wrench in top right corner) and select settings. There you should check the homepages lists and see what appears there change it to your preference and hopefull AVG homepage shouldn’t be there if it is delete it.
