Ok I had read this article prior to my posting but was thinking if there were any thing new that you could add on this subject, so with this being said I suppose there is no way to get rid of the problem.
and to my thinking when I had AVG I had it for a short time and uninstalled it and to my thinking I remember I downloaded avg from cnet.
I had also read some place to be careful with such things and was sure I did not click on anything from avg or any were to add any tool bars and other unwanted items.
I had run revo and that found nothing in the way of avg so was thinking that the revo would have taken cared of that problem.
Thankyou for the reply with info quietman7
Have a good day

Was reading the information that you left, I have checked and rechecked in the past on the tool bars and addons in internet explorer and I didn't see anything that was added there nothing from avg.
but I did use the adwcleaner just recently and that found the avg search.
I try to not download from anyplace that I think would be dangerous but I think I will stay clear of cnet, I have downloaded from them in the past but not recently.
I have heard of major geeks and the other places that you mentioned so when I need to download again I will use one of them.
Thank you very much for all the interesting info, you are so very helpful.
Have a great night or day.

If you never used AVG or if you do and want to keep it but get rid of AVG Secure Search - AVG Security Toolbar, please refer to:
* How To Disable AVG Secure Search Provider In Browsers
* How to uninstall AVG Secure Search in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome
* How To Disable AVG Search From New Tab

BTW, these are generally safe third-party download hosting sites for free software:

Safe software download sites – Beware of deceptive download links & PUPs
I was re-reading the info from the website on safe software download sites-I ran across some one there whom suggested to use WIN-PATROL.
I was looking to find out if win-patrol can be used along side other protection as in malwarebytes-super anti spyware etc.and if there would be any conflicts with using other spywares with win-patrol.
And what is your opinion to use win-patrol.
Have a good day,
