"Awful Foistware"

November 12, 2014  |  By delblu

 |  Version: AVG Secure Search 1.0

Pros

At least it's not a virus

Cons

Limited search results
Horrid interface
Technically I'm sure I actually agreed to installing it but I don't remember that bit
Why would I want to set this as my home page

Summary

Why?

"Invasive Hijacking Software !!! NOT RECOMMENDED..."

February 24, 2014  |  By respool1141

 |  Version: AVG Secure Search 1.0

Pros

May offer some protection from rogue web pages.

Cons

It takes over your browsers and makes AVG Search your home page in all of your browsers.
I was able to change IE11 back to my desired home page but have not found a way to permanently revert to my desired home page in Firefox. I can change it to what I want and click on "home" and I get my desired home page but if I close Firefox and re-open it, guess what back to the AVG Search page!!! I CALL THAT HIJACKING !!!!

Summary

Have always like AVG but I'm no longer recommending it to clients because of it's invasive and hijacking nature. Until AVG stops this undesirable practice it will get nothing but POOR reviews from me.

"Infects Computers"

December 14, 2013  |  By JohnBoy1012

 |  Version: AVG Secure Search 1.0

Pros

No Pros at all

Cons

Has now infected 2 of my Windows XP PC's causing a "MacineIdCreator" error to pop up every time I restart or power up the PC. None of the so called help from AVG site has fixed the problem. I am now at the point where I will probably have to rebuild the OS. It seems to be installed with other software ( but I am not sure what) so be very careful to do custom installs of all software and read all the pop ups during install

Summary

Try to avoid this at all costs
