Avg Secure Search

Post by jakesdad on Sun 22 Apr 2012, 11:42 pm

I can't get rid of this thing, and I didn't ask for it, and I haven't used Avg. in months. Is it malware? Is there a fix? Any help appreciated.

Thanks DMJ, but this didn't do it. Had already tried the remover and still have Avg as my default search in IE. Hasn't affected Firefox yet. Running the remover shows avg.com running endlessly and no change. Never ran into this before. I uninstalled avg over a year ago, and never used their search engine. Popped up last week having hijacked IE. Is there a plan B? Thanks for your help.

Let's try to clean it manually then...

Please visit this webpage for a tutorial on downloading and running ComboFix:
