Free Toolbars – #11

AVG has come out with a new free toolbar.

AVG - Yahoo Toolbar
AVG - Yahoo

I was surprised to note that when I installed AVG on the new Win-64 system that the toolbar was present in Internet Explorer any way.  I thought, initially, that it was some quirk of the installer on a 64-bit system to ignore the flag.  However, closer inspection of the dialog revealed my mistake.

This particular dialog contains two check boxes.  One is below the image in the usual place and one is above the image.  The one below (and the one I clicked to clear without looking at the rest of the dialog) controls whether or not Yahoo! is installed as the default search provider.  I don’t want programs changing my IE search provider either.

Sneaky, very sneaky.
