Granted, the Yahoo search bar does not have the same questionable reputation as the Ask toolbar. However, what message is AVG sending when their newly released Version 8 product includes the search bar pre-checked and disguised as a "Security Toolbar"?
To make matters worse, the reports indicate the toolbar is installed even when the option to include the toolbar is UNchecked.

Discussion in some communities is suggesting that the Yahoo search bar is easy to uninstall. In my opinion, that is already too late. Depending on the package home subscribers purchase, the cost goes from $35 to $55 (USD). That means that AVG receives not only the price of the subscription but also the fee from Yahoo for each installation, all at the cost to the subscriber.
What happened to integrity?
