But I have to say that this latest version includes also some annoying little features I didn't like at all, chiefly regarding my browser configuration. Of course, if you did miss that option and let AVG change the search engine, you can always change it back to Google (or whichever you use) within the web browser. All you have to do is click the icon on the system tray and confirm the change in the following dialog window. Another thing AVG Anti-Virus changes – and this time, without letting you know – is the New tab page.
If you prefer to use the standard blank page instead, click the small black arrow beside the AVG logo on the AVG Toolbar and select Options. Like I said, the changes that AVG Anti-Virus 9 applies to your browser are not critical and won't affect the browser functionality or compromise your system's security. The problem with security software these days is that it's all becoming geared towards the noob user, who doesn't have any knowledge on how to mix and match security products for the best experience. Instead all the developers are producing all in one-stop packages that in some cases turn out to be a "Jack of all trades - master of none", because they cause conflicts with other security software that may be installed.
I found the AVG site difficult to navigate and then when I had finally downloaded the program it failed to install.
Hey, AVira is great but doesn't have Anti-Spyware, now, I'm infected by Malware Defense, Avira didn't block it !! Yes, I realize it's free, but taking excessive liberty with a customer's system is not a good way to convince them to PAY to have their liberty violated.
If AVG was my girlfriend I'd be pullin' her aside to talk about needing space and being polyamorous. Thanks for the info - yes I have been an AVG fan for some time and installed on many friends PC over the years. I also find that version 9 seems more resource hungry and have had problems with the updating that I have never experienced with other versions.
One more criticism is when you go to get the install file on the AVG site, you select avg free and pages after that try to lead you to buy the paid version (that has a free trial) this happens a few times.
AVG toolbar is nothing new to version 9; it's offered to install itself for the past couple of versions.
As for AVG pro, I'm a computer technician and have a few clients who 'upgraded' from the free version and they all regretted it.
I've been using an older computer while my other is in the shop, and in the course of updating other software I updated to AVG 9. However , I'm concerned that it doesn't detect every instance of malware, because i recently installed Trustdefender and it regularly tells me I've got malware.Any ideas anyone ?
My fifa 11 is running slowly as i activated AVG free 2011-9.Before that Fifa 11 was working great.Please help !!!
I have not renewed my subscription to AVG, which was wasting so much of my time and slowing my machine to an intolerable extent.I am now back with Avira Free, so far without any problems. Download AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2015 Offline Standalone Setup Installer [Direct Link ] – AVG Technologies today released its new 2015 consumer product line, featuring the same level of protection along with some really great new features and improvements over the previous version.
After the relatively major changes introduced in the 2014 versions, AVG AntiVirus 2015 are restricted to a redesigned user interface and new Outbreak Detection feature.
Outbreak Detection – Normally, when we find a new threat, we build malware definition packages that include several detection and removal methods, test them internally and finally distribute them to our users.
However, take note that during installation, AVG tries to install a browser toolbar (AVG Security Toolbar) and change your default search provider to AVG Secure Search.
You can return any new or unused item within 90 days of the date your item was shipped and we will refund the full purchase price.
AVG security toolbar which works along with link scanner to identify malicious websites from the search results produced by  search engines like Google, Yahoo,  Bing and others . What AVG claims is that AVG security toolbar will identify dangerous websites before you even open them.

If you prefer to install AVG security toolbar while installing AVG, to see how it monitors dangerous websites apart from that it will also changes default search engine for IE and Firefox .
I will recommend the users to know the consequences of installing some toolbars bundled with some programs. AVG 2013 Installer makes the changes you requested and removes the toolbar from your Computer and AVG will continue to work as usual without any issues.
I like its ease of use, its moderation in system resources usage and the fact that it hardly shows any window or notification.
For me, browser settings are untouchable and no program should be allowed to mess with that – not even my dear old AVG Anti-Virus. The funny thing is that AVG Anti-Virus will warn you as if it was some piece of malware trying to modify your browser settings! But it's the kind of detail that can make you immediately dislike a program, and even switch to another one if the long run. I find they can only see one button when installing software, "NEXT", so they miss the "Do you want to install this toolbar that annoys the hell out of you every 5 minutes?". The only gripe I have is that Avira's servers are so slow when it comes to updates, so I do a manual update. I installed AVG 9 on my newest computer a few weeks ago and I very specifically chose at install time to not switch to Yahoo search. If you're going to pay for an antivirus, try getting an actually high rated one like Kaspersky or NOD32. This includes to personalise ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. Among new 2015 solutions is the very popular AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2015, the latest version of possibly the world’s most downloaded free antivirus! It also delivers great preventative protection that blocks infected links and files as you surf, checks everything before you click through, and helps protect your personal data online and on your PC with enhanced privacy features.
The new simplified design makes sure you know what needs your attention at a glance, While Outbreak Detection helps block zero-day malware exploits. We’ve perfected our interface to give you full-featured anti-virus protection in a beautifully simple design. This represented a short window during which you could have potentially been infected with an emerging 0-day threat before the detection methods are up to date on your computer.
You need to have active internet on the PC where you wish to install AVG AntiVirus Free Edition 2015 using this online Setup installer. If you do not want any changes to be applied to your system then be sure clear the relevant check boxes. This can be very irritating as it obstructs the normal flow of using Google search engine in Chrome browser.
AVG security toolbar will be added to IE and Firefox if you selected to install along with AVG 8.5. On the next step which shows AVG security toolbar window, uncheck “ Recommended –Yes I would like to install AVG Security toolbar”. I've installed and tried every single new version, including AVG Anti-Virus Free 9.0, which came out only yesterday and works really well – as usual.
There's nothing wrong with this toolbar; actually, it's actually a nice security addition for your browser.
I just hope AVG Anti-Virus doesn't go any further in this direction, so I don't have to take any drastic action like changing antivirus provider! Security software manufacturers need to keep the advanced users in mind when producing software too.
Just tonight, after several weeks since the original install and using Google, I noticed that my default search had been changed to Yahoo and AVG blocked my efforts to set it back to Google which is what led me to your article. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners.

The Free AVG antivirus offers high quality basic protection for your windows PCs from all types of malware threats including viruses, adware, spyware, worms, rootkits, and more.
The smart performance technology enables quicker scan and gaming without annoying lags and freezes caused by scheduled updates and scans, meaning AVG AntiVirus 2015 is protection that never gets in your way. Simple circles give you an overview of your level of protection, and their color alerts you to potential problems. If you know well about toolbar like Google toolbar, you can proceed to install them otherwise not. But if you don't pay attention, you'll also let AVG change your default search engine to Yahoo!.
Simple fix, but this really irks me -- I get kinda antsy when security software that's supposed to protect me FROM malware starts acting LIKE malware.
It meets antivirus security software needs for most casual computer users, online surfing, searching and social networking. A partial circle means that certain protection features are not activated or installed, while a full one means that you are fully covered.
Now, when we discover a 0-day threat, we immediately upload our earliest detection methods into the back end of our cloud-based threat database.
Idea is to revert back to default setting of using Google Search as default search engine in Google Chrome.1. All these things really annoys a user, as no one wants to change to their default search engine.
First I must state the changeover I did not find easy, it seemed confusing to me at the AVG site. I reckon this probably happened as the result of an automatic update that got a little big in it's britches and wasn't scripted quite right to inherit my initial settings. This joins AVG’s File Shredder and Data Safe to deliver powerful privacy and identity protection at home and on the move.
Whenever a user comes across that threat and is in a position to activate it, our behavioral detection kicks in and does a reputation check. If I had it over to do I would totally uninstall the free version and then down load the paid version. I've used AVG for years though, and you're right, this kinda thing definitely makes one think about switching. Combined with their free comprehensive online support, you can be sure you’re getting our best protection. This left me feeling naked without a firewall, so I downloaded zone alarm free edition firewall. This new method helps keep you safe the moment we know a threat is out there, and helps to stop its spread while we develop the regular definitions packages which contain a broader and more thorough protection. I have been very happy with AVG and feel with the combination of all three I have a formidable security network. If you do not see Home button, that means Home button is hidden in Chrome browser on your computer.4.
Click on Manage Search Engines button.In the pop-up box, hover mouse over Google option and click on Make Default button. Click Window’s Start button, type add and remove programs and look for AVG Security Toolbar in the list (not AVG 2012 or AVG 2013).
