I use AVG as my anti-virus and today it installed the whole safe-search toolbar thing in the background while I was playing a video game. I’m pretty sure I didn’t consent to that, but whatever… Undoing the damage to my settings took quite a bit of work and I had trouble removing it from Chrome. First I followed all the steps outlined here, but pressing the home button in Chrome would still bring up the “mysearch.avg.com” website no matter what settings I changed.
Man, what I piece of work. I’m not alone thinking that AVG did something bad for the user here.
