how do I block something called "avgsearch.com"; it looks like a browser set by my virus software and I deplore the idea of a virus software diverting my information on the internet instead of just protecting me

this website came up on its own and looks like it came from my virus software through avg. I detest the idea of a virus software doing things which I have not authorized as it looks like it is setting itself as some type of default browser. how do I get rid of it and prevent it from functioning. I already complained to avg to no avail. thanks,
