Avast! overrides google chrome "new tab" settings?
« on: February 17, 2013, 08:22:34 AM »
Hello!
I seem to have a slight problem on my windows 7 pc running Avast! Free and Google Chrome. No matter what i set Google chrome to open as a new tab (on startup OR the new tab -button) it insists on opening the Avast!/Google search website.

This ofcourse will not do. I want Chrome to obey my commands like the good little browser it is, but i dont want Avast! to come in and overrule what i just told Chrome to do.

I'm perfectly fine with Google sponsoring Avast! like that, but i want to have the choice not to.

How do i stop Avast! from overruling my settings in chrome?

Well shit, thanks for the overwhelming amount of support! I just gone and did it myself, but thanks for all the outstanding help! All 0 replies were truly helpfull. This incredibly tight-knit community just inspired me to never buy the professional version.

I don't have that problem.  Actually, I've never seen the Avast/Google search website
Check your settings and see if that gives you a clue.
