    Are you using any AVG products? Particularly AVG Secure Search.

    Hi barbarads,

    For future reference, you should start your own separate thread when posting a problem here.

    But since you two have the same problem, what I'd recommend for you both is to simply uninstall AVG Secure Search.

    Not only is it an annoying toolbar but I've read several posts from AVG users about how to changes your homepage too.

    I'd remove it as soon as possible.
