When I open a new tab in Google Chrome, it's being redirected to an unwanted url. I don't know how this has happened, and I can't seem to find the relevant settings to disable the redirection and bring back the old speed dial page. How can I get rid of this?

I am being redirected to http://isearch.avg.com

Have you tried to wipe your profile. Of course the behavior you describe sounds like malware is installed on your system. – Ramhound Feb 11 '13 at 16:29

You have Malware. – That Brazilian Guy Feb 11 '13 at 16:48

Go to your Chrome settings > Search > Manage search engines > Remove AVG from the listed options (there is an X at the end of the line) > pick another search engine > Done.

This is not malware as suggested in the comments. It's AVG's search page.

There is only Google search engine on the list. As I remember, I removed other search engines from the list a few weeks ago. – Meysam Feb 12 '13 at 4:50
    
Follow these instructions from AVG themselves avg.com/ww-en/secure-search-uninstall Factory reset might be an option if nothing else works. – whatever Feb 12 '13 at 7:02
