Every time I agree to an update or I uninstall the toolbar they keep installing without my permission, they mess-up the tabs on my browser! I'm done with this crap and I would strongly discourage anyone from giving these *** ****s any support! Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes may not be perfect, but at least they don't mess with my browsers or install things without my permission!

This never happens to me. It does sound frustrating, though.

it's called a custom installation and you turn that crap off. don't blame programs for your inability to properly install them.

I know what customized installation is! That's exactly what I use! I'm not an idiot! That's not always a selectable option, and when it is an option, I always deselect the AVG toolbar, but somehow it turns up on my computer anyway even after I've uninstalled it! Don't assume everyone who has issues with a product is too stupid to know how it works! It's just about the toolbar anyway! Every time it gets installed or removed, it launches my browser and changes the tabs to its home page, and that is what pisses me off!!
