Stubborn infection

AVG Forums visitors reported hard to remove infections lately, sometimes accompanied by rootkits. Scanning the system using updated AVG Rescue CD when an infection is coming back usually rectifies the issue. AVG Rescue CD is able to find rootkits easily as they are not active when the host operating system is not running.
In case an infection is still coming back or cannot be removed, it may be hidden in a virtual file system which is not accessible by usual means or protected in a different way.
Should you need assistance with infection removal, please contact AVG technical support or describe the issue on AVG Forums.

AVG search on newly opened Firefox tabs

AVG Forums visitors mentioned they would like to disable the AVG default new tab page (which includes AVG secure search). This feature could be disabled by clicking the Settings link in lower-right corner of the newly opened tab as seen on this screenshot (note the Settings link is not available on home page, it is present only on newly opened tabs).
- Modify the Show AVG Secure Search Box on new tabs in the browser as you wish.
- Click OK to save your configuration.
