    Just from my own experience, I would advise you to use GOOGLE'S own Chrome, if you MUST use Chrome at all.

    Under no circumstances should you ever use AVG's version of Chrome, as it will hijack much of your saved material and convert it to stuff that will only load under AVG's Chrome version. I had to dump all my programs and reinstall Windows 10 to escape it.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

Or as I'm guessing Google manages to leave a lot of garbage on my computer. Did I mention I really dislike Google!

    Oh and this virtual appt? What a load of nonsense! So do I put the computer microphone up to my chest and the Dr. puts the stethoscope up to his computer speaker?! And I have to pay my co-pay for this! Yea I get we are all trying to avoid COVID.

    I know wah, wah, wah!

    I see it as a big waste of my co-pay and insurance money! I already know what he is going to tell me. His nurse already called me with the results of the CT scan. Plus, more whining from me, spent a bunch of time early this morning getting the microphone and camera set up as this stuff has never been on before! To me it's just a giant pain and I will not comply again!

    I hate going to doctor appointments. I go online and fill out all of the pre-appointment info like they recommend to save time when I get there. Then when I get to the appointment I spend ten minutes answering the same things that I already went over online. Another thing that always gets me is that they ask what meds your on when they are the ones the prescribed them. Between diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol I take enough pills that I can't remember the names of all of them even if I could pronounce the names.

    Chrome or any browser will want you make it your default brower. Like Nancy Reagan said, just say No. It will still work fine. Same for anything else it recommends or wants you to install as part of the Chrome install.

    LOL I feel your pain! I always want to say to them, you have all that info right there on your computer or did you lose it from the last time I gave it to you!

    If you don't like Chrome, download Microsoft's new Edge browser. It replaces the old Edge Browser and as built around Chromium. Even better, it can use ALL of the extensions from Google's Play Store, AND you can use any search engine you want.
