AVG Search Shield or Link scanner is default enabled after installing AVG Antivirus.Link scanner rates websites security shown from search results in Google,Yahoo and MSN .It may delay the process of displaying search results while Link scanner is analyzing Websites .
We can disable Link Scanner as Google and other search engines are configured to show safe websites in their search results .They can show malware sites in search results as harmful sites for us to remind not to open (Forget Google flagging entire websites as malware,that is a human error ,we can trust Google ,can we?).
