    "Ticked Off!"

    October 30, 2012  |   By stephlynn86


    WinZip works


    I get ticked every time I download an upgrade because they include the AVG toolbar and search page, which take over my computer (in a way). The AVG search page automatically makes itself my homepage - how irritating is that! The AVG toolbar sets itself up without my ok also. Now I've got to go into the Control Panel and kick it all off of my computer. It should ask me prior to download if this is all ok and not just make it part of the auto-install!!

    I don't understand how anyone can write a comment criticising someone else's literacy, when they appear not to know the difference between 'accept' and 'except'.

    I agree, I DL this app and I clicked on decline and it still installed the AVG toolbar also I went to the control panel to uninstall and it wont uninstall. it says file does not exist. meanwhile it keeps popping up on my computer where the clock is. it is very agravating. I finally got rid of the tab that opened everytime I went on line, but can't get rid of the program still trying to figure this out. So yes I am sorry I DL this irritating program. unbelievable!!!!

    you are asked to decline or except "press the DECLINE button and it will install the program without any kind of toolbars" you only have two choices,
    you say the AVG toolbar sets itself up without your OK, you are the only one to give it permission to install the toolbar by pressing the except button.
    i don't understand how anyone can work a PC without knowing the difference between decline and except.. "now i"am TICKED OFF"
