I recently installed AVG for virus scanning purposes and to block my browser from redirecting, but now I can't even access google(that means no gmail)

And Captcha's which are sometimes needed, don't appear on any website, at all

any idea what might be going on?

Hi Im somewhat new here,

If you were being redirected before you installed AVG then there's a strong possibility that you may be infected and very unlikely that AVG will solve the issue now. Were/are you being redirected?

If that is the case, then your best option would be to follow the instructions in our Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide. Please begin with Step 2 and continuing on to Steps 3,4, & 5. Do Not post your logs in the Computer Help forums. Start a new thread in the removal forum as directed in Step 3 of the Guide.

Thank you,

Donna :)
