    "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
