AVG has hi-jacked my Chrome!

PostMon Jun 03, 2013 7:30 pm

don't ask me how it happened but whenever i open a new tab now and type in something into the top box that i want to search for it comes up with "AVG Search" (powered by Google), and i can't seem to get rid of it

the search engine seems to work fine but it gets on my tits cos I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT

when i go into settings the "Omnibox Search Option" is set to Google and there is no sign of AVG anywhere that i can see

anyone got any idea how i can fuck it off?

sorted it

somehow the "AVG toolbar" had been installed (i always deselect the option to install it when it updates, but maybe i had a brain fart), uninstalled and Chrome is behaving as normal now
