A few days ago my uncle updated his avg to the 2012 free edition and now his Internet Explorer homepage is perpetually set to isearch.avg.com. Now the issue is that it is the homepage, anything that makes a google search safer is prefered and google is what he want's the homepage to be.
The issue is that we can not change the homepage to anything else or remove isearch.avg.com as the homepage. This is very frustrating because we have tried going so far as a complete reset of the IE settings to factory.
Also we can add as many homepage tabs as we like but not change the main tab homepage from isearch.avg.com. When we try to remove isearch.avg.com from the list of homepages it removes the page listed below it. When we try to reorganize which page comes first on the tabs through the internet option window what ever we place first is changed to isearch.avg.com as soon as we close the window even when "Apply" has been pressed.
I hate to make the claim but this is a very virus-like ability that has left us disturbed and frustrasted. The only thing we have left to try is a complete uninstall of AVG and the eradication of every byte pertaining to it from the HDD.
Sorry mate, I am also stuck with this problem and unable to remove isearch.avg.com from my home page.
I have not installed any product of AVG, I just installed GOM Player and my home page is changed to isearch.avg.com, it is very irritating, I have uninstalled the AVG tool bar but my home page is still isearch.avg.com, I am currently using Google Chrome v19.0.1084.46, I have also changed my home page from settings>Appearance>Show home Button and set it to google.com but still my home is not changed.
