    How do I get rid of AVG Security trailware, A Czech Co.? It acts like a security program, but limits your contact with the google browser, you have automatically authorized their AVG browser when you sign up for the trail, but it seems like wether you activate it or not, it stays active.  I tried to purchase the Kapersky (Russian) pkg, as I like it and it worked well the last time I subscribed to it, even though it is Russian.  AVG won't let me do it.  I assume that is because if I did, it would take care of getting rid of it.  What a mess !

    Something about one of your updates keeps making my computer crash. It did it last month and it's doing it again this month. How do I find out which update is causing the problem and how do I prevent it from being automatically downloaded and installed?
