some software, probably the AVG, has installed Yandex as a search engine for providing me with search on errors 404. I generally hate such a service, and especially hate Yandex -- but I fail to remove it! I already has unchecked the box at the AVG toollbar options, but it does not work for me.

There is suspicious line in the table of settings

keyword.URL http://search.avg.com/dispatcher.aspx?i=40&tp=ab&q=

this URL certainly heads to yandex. However, I have no idea how can I remove it forever.

I would much appreciate your help!
