My laptop uses AVG commerical I called tech support they had me go to AVG.com\support and read FAQ 1865. I went to my brothers house and used his computer to read FAQ# 1865 AVG update - "Access forbidden by server". I followed the instructions and downloaded the softwear. I also downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and ran it to my flash drive and then updated it. I Ran the programs on the laptop and the programs found nothing. I was still not able to download updates or go to microsofts update page with out being redirected to the google search page. In my reading this weekend about what the causes may be there was a short blurb about someones router being infected with malwear. well to make a long story short I took out the router and hooked up to the cable moden directly. I am now able to do all the updates and download the different softwear. I am no longer being redirected. I hope this helps others that are having the same problem.....It may be in your router.
