I have noticed recently when undertaking google searches, that the search results have a green tick placed next to them indicating the site is safe. When the cursor is hovered over the tick, an AVG pop up indictes that the site is safe.

Is there a way of turning off this function?

Thanks:)

Why do you not like the safety feature?

It's most likely AVG Link Scanner

It's not really a case of not liking the feature - I was just wondering why they had suddenly appeared.

Hi, Then you have an answer. There are other standalone or built in scanners like that, McAfee makes Site Advisor, and there are others, like Web of Trust (WOT) You should use just one at a time, though.

They absolutely will make life a lot easier for users of the Internet once you detail how it works to them.

Saves guesswork and possible side affects! Have a great holiday season, if you celebrate.
