How to remove AVG Nation tool bar and avg.nation.com home page


 

This post is useful to get rid of annoying AVG nation search home page and AVG nation tool bar from your computer. Recently I got an update alert from AVG antivirus at bottom right side of my screen, I accepted to install it. Till now it is fine but i got irritated with default home page from Chrome web browser, the same page was automatically opening every time I open my web browser  and each tab as well.

chrome avg nation 

We generally love Google as home page but here there is no chance to set Google as home page, the URL address appearing on above image completely replaces our default home page and we can’t get rid of this even if you try all modifications in the chrome’s settings section.

So we can not get rid of this by doing any changes in the preferences or extensions and so on from any browser. The solution is there at “Add or Remove Programs” in windows.

uninstall toolbar avg

1. Go to Add or Remove Programs from Control Panel.

2. Select the AVG Nation Toolbar from the list.

3. Click on the Uninstall/Change and remove the program from system.

You will get a new webpage to show – We’re sad to see you go

You are out of the toolbar and annoying home page, and it would replace your browser settings back as usual.

How to Download Torrents using IDM




This post gives you the different alternatives to download torrents using IDM or any other download manager. Some times torrents might get stuck or download with very low speeds, at this time we must have lot more patience. To overcome these low speed downloads we can use IDM or Any other download manager to boost the download speed.

1. www.zbigz.com

 This is one of the good website to download torrents. You just need to enter torrent magnet link or upload a .torrent file and follow simple instructions as specified on the screen. As a free user you can download maximum 2 files and bandwidth is very limited. If you take premium account everything is unlimited

limitations: 
- Very limited internet speed
- Torrent size restricted
- Some times getting error during starting of the download

2. www.putdrive.com

 Putdrive is another download website as like zbigz and it is offering more internet bandwidth compared to zbigz, size is the biggest advantage you can go for very large sized torrents with resume support
Working is as usual like zbigz, there are some restrictions on bandwidth as a free user. But as a premium user you can avail all the more storage and more speed and more internet speed.

It has many restrictions but you can try for 10 GB free Ozi box cloud storage. 

 
  File stream website is also offering almost same as putdrive. The downloading speed is also more but space is limited to 10 GB. But some times it is not recommended for large sized torrent files. We can try this for small sized torrent files till 1 to 2 GB data.


These are the some alternatives to download the torrents by not using utorrent or bittorrent clients. We can download via any other download manager. But it is not recommended to download using default download manager, we might get problem when internet was disconnected so it is needed to use any download manager with resume support.
