AVG Update and Screwing with your Search

I was able to fix most of the search values. Reset default page. Set search bar back to Google. But if I typed in the URL, the search went to AVG.  Argh…

After much searching, found the solution here: http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/810780

Which was in turn found here http://forums.avg.com/ww-en/avg-free-forum?sec=thread&act=show&id=157513 ,

 

SOLUTION

1) Type in address-bar about:config and press Enter

2) Confirm warning dialog

3) Find keyword.URL (you can use Filter)

4) Change value of keyword.URL to http://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=

And there you have it, your URL is back.  😉
