I was having the same problem too. Uninstalling the AVG Toolbar from web browsers turned out to be the fix. IE was easy - with the browser open you simply go to Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab - Reset Internet explorer settings. Firefox proved bit
more difficult. With the broswer closed I had to run a command prompt from the start menu. Type in firefox -safe-mode, click ok. Then just tick the disable all add-ons box, then make changes and restart. I then simply re-booted the computer and the probem
was gone - didnt even have to go have to switch AVG Malware on using the security centre.
