avg-secure-searchMy mom is desperately sick of AVG spamming her computer. She uninstalled it months ago and it still shows up when she searches from the navigation toolbar. She has tried to uninstall it by going to Mozilla extensions, and deleting the toolbar there but that didn’t work.

What is AVG Secure Search?
If users have recently installed AVG Free antivirus you might have noticed the new, annoying AVG Secure Search Toolbar in Firefox and Internet Explorer browser. Such a toolbar, apart from offering users interesting features/shortcuts to the AVG antivirus, it also protects users surfing by blocking dangerous and infected websites before opening them. Such a feature is known as AVG Secure Search. Nevertheless, a certain amount of users don’t like this toolbar and the way it monitors the Internet and are trying to uninstall and remove it in order to experience a free web surfing.

Issue when removing AVG Secure Search
For a month now, I have helped my mother dealing with this AVG Secure Search listing that appears in Firefox Extensions list. I can’t uninstall it because the button is grayed out. I am able to disable it, but it’s still annoying. If you don’t like the idea of being “watched” while you surf the Internet, or if you don’t like the AVG Toolbar automatically sets the default search engine on your browser, you can apply a powerful removal of the AVG Secure Search in order to prevent changes brought by it.

Uninstaller tool for AVG Secure Search
Having been said that this AVG Toolbar is able to set Google as default search engine and add to its page an AVG Secure Search logo, many people have tried fully uninstalling both AVG and chrome, but it is still there. To have AVG Secure Search completely removed from your computer is nearly impossible through the manual means but with a Perfect Uninstaller.

    I do not want to wholly uninstall AVG since I will want to have it running later. But right now, I am running cpu intensive video editing program, and I removed all non essential processes.This feels great!

    I clicked out of an update on AVG, and the next thing I knew I had an unwanted AVG toolbar! I was able to hide the actual AVG toolbar using “tools”, manage add-ons, etc., but “AVG Secure Search” still shows up on my search box–even though the rest of my original toolbar is intact. I want to get my Google Search back in that toolbar searchbox.Will your tool help?

    manage add-ons, etc., but “AVG Secure Search” still shows up on my search. Can your uninstaller tool take care of this matter.
