"Installs AVG Toolbar Without Asking You-"
Gom player is a good player but now it has changed. It now installs unwanted AVG Toolbar.Which is impossible to remove.
Installs unwanted AVG toolbar and will also change your search page in Internet Explorer to AVG. After which you CANNOT set back to your old homepage-problem.
Gom was a good media player,still is. But the problem is it now installs the AVG toolbar and also changes your homepage to AVG search without asking you or giving your the option to opt out.Reading reviews from other users here they have had the same problem. Gom used to let you refuse the install of the toolbar-But not anymore.
Which is disgusting and wrong.
It happened to me today when I updated Gom play.To find to my horror it installed the AVG Toolbar AND it changed my homepage in Internet Explorer to AVG Search. And I could not uninstall the toolbar from control panel.Even when I deleted the AVG program file on my C drive it was still there. Also I could not reset my Internet Explorer homepage back to Google- it just kept reverting back to AVG search. Normally if your homepage changes you can revert back to another homepage or just change it back. But I was simply unable to.So in the end I had to do a system restore to get it off my computer. I have now uninstall GM player and I will NEVER USE IT AGAIN.Not after this.
most software asks you if you want to install a toolbar and you can opt out. But with Gom play you cannot,it will install it anyway.
With other software even if it does change your homepage,you can change it back again-But not with Gom play.
Therefor I will warn user NEVER install Gom Player again.Not unless you want to be stuck with a permanent toolbar and change of home page you can't get rid of.
DO NOT INSTALL GOM PLAYER NEVER AGAIN,IF YOU ALREADY HAVE IT UNINSTALL IT,OR YOU WILL REGRET IT AS I DID.
I did a system restore and I got rid of the thing,though.
