I lost my Google Chrome. When I click on my Google Chrome Icon, I get AVG Secure Search, Explore with Yahoo search.

I try to download Google Chrome again and it said download completed. I don’t know how to bring it up. I can’t find it.

It sounds like you’ve just lost your Home page on Chrome. 

When you see “AVG Secure Search, Explore with Yahoo ” do you have an address bar at the top where you can type in “” – for example?

If so, then you just need to reset your home page.

  • click the 3-bar menu in upper left
  • click ‘Settings’
  • in the ‘On startup’ section (the second one on the settings screen) select ‘Open the New Tab page’
  • Also make sure your Search section is using Google.  If you see Yahoo there, click the dropdown arrow and select Google
  • Close that window
  • Open Chrome again – you should now see a fresh screen with the Google logo and thumbnails for your most popular websites.

Let us know if that helped.
