    "Good but could use a custom install"

    April 5, 2012  |   By nissen250


    Has almost all the features I requested last year


    I do not generally like added search companions. Must be able to opt out of their secure search engine


    Excellent Anti virus/antisyware system, but don't pack a search addon next time.

    nissen250 here is something that I have learned keep AVG installed and install it again and you will get Add/Remove Features. Or you can go into your program files just delete the Avg Secure Search File.

    There is a custom install, and you can opt out of the secure search engine. I used the custom install.
