can't delete browser history

  slee 19:15 18 Aug 2008

I recently installed AVG and now I can't delete/clear my browsing history, its getting huge. Tried the usual tools/internet options/delete/delete all but it has no effect on the AVG tool bar browser. Also can't seem to get google maps anymore but one thing at a time. I'm starting to wonder about this AVG. any help greatly appreciated

I would remove the AVG toolbar - do you really need it?

thanks sea urchin, I've managed to hide the AVG tool bar but would like to delete it as it seems pretty pervasive. I went to your attachment but it seems odd to have to buy something to get a handle on free AVG. Is there any way to get rid of the AVG tool bar for keeps by editing the program?

I had the same problem and decided to uninstall AVG totally, and in my case I installed Avast instead. My thoughts are that once it's ready(AVG that is) for reinstallation watch for the option to either install or not the toolbar and click it to not instal.

I don't understand how my link asked you to buy anything - it simply showed you how to remove the toolbar which you say you've done. If you want to "delete" it completely you would have to reinstall it as bluto1 suggests, and uncheck Install AVG Toolbar

I'm with bluto1. Uninstall AVG and use Avast instead.
