Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you with this and providing you with the information you need.

What do you mean by AVG "takes over"? What home page are you seeing instead? Is it saying you are infected?

And this is happening in Internet Explorer, correct?

Are you able to close Internet Explorer without issue, or does it give you an error message when closing the browser
