How do i get rid of avg.name from my search bar?


I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of this. It is a total pain. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and it keeps coming back. I can't get to a website without trying 10 times and by the time I actually get to the website I am so irritated that I can't enjoy doing anything. It's very frustrating. I have started using Chrome and will continue to do so until I get this resolved. I would rather have Firefox, but it just isn't worth the headache and frustration. Thanks for any help you can give me.
