I can direct you to this thread where JMH has helped you with that,

avg 9 Update ?

Or to this video that you can watch,




Just fast forward to the set up instructions.

If I find someone that uses AVG I'll point them to this thread.

What settings are you having trouble with? The video above is pretty self explanatory and thorough.

You may want to post those questions on the AVG forum,

AVG Forums - AVG 9.0 Free Edition

I did find these links that may help you out,

How to add AVG LinkScanner to Firefox, If it was installed after AVG | Techdows

This is about linkscanner from AVG forum,

AVG Forums - LinkScanner Not Working...

If you go to the 4 min. mark in that video above, that's where the scanning settings begin.

This will remove the yahoo toolbar but not the wholle software (AVG.)

If I've understood brightsun correctly, the toolbar is no longer a problem.

I think there are some settings that seem to be confusing.

Is this correct brightsun?

brightsun,
Please answer these questions.[In the other thread you avoided doing this.]
1. Who installed your AVG Anti Virus program for you? [I seem to recall you saying someone else did]
2. Did your computer come with another Anti Virus program installed?



Early in the other thread I gave you guidance on how to fill in your System Specs & the reason why it was recommended. I note that they are still not done.
If you wish to receive help from us it would be nice if you followed our directions.


Derek, you are showing great patience. Well done.

Hi, brightsun.

I believe that is because you did not install the the Yahoo toolbar (for which AVG gets paid per installation). Without the toolbar, you lose some of the options in controlling LinkScanner. From FAQ 2390
What is the AVG Security Toolbar and how can I disable it? at AVG Free - FAQ
Quote:
Disabling or uninstalling the AVG Security Toolbar has no negative effect on the level of security provided by LinkScanner component. The only consequence of missing toolbar is an absence of some of the options, and less verbose information about the threats found by the LinkScanner component. The main settings of the LinkScanner component can be still configured in AVG User Interface.
(No, I do not and will not use AVG. )
