Solved Extra tab opening for pogo.com on craigslist.

January 15, 2013 at 11:16:45
Specs: Windows 7, core i5 8gb ram
Every time I click on a search box or a link on craigslist I get a new tab that opens for Pogo.com. It only seems to happen when I go to craigslist. It also only happens when I am using chrome. I am running windows 7. I have scanned with avg and spybot. I have removed and reinstalled chrome to no avail. I have no idea what my problem is please help. edit: I also got the new tab for pogo.com while trying to edit this post, so it's not just a craigslist problem.

Looks like I fixed it. I uninstalled avg antivirus and now it doesn't do it anymore. I ran Hijack this and it said I had to turn off my antivirus. So i did. It still wasn't working so I did a system restore to an earlier state. After the restore avg wouldn't work anymore, so I tried to uninstall it. It wouldn't uninstall. I downloaded the AVG removal tool and uninstalled AVG and now chrome doesn't open a POGO tab anymore. This seems really weird too me. I'm happy the problem is fixed but the process doesn't make much sense to me. If anyone wants to take a stab at what could have happened I'd appreciate the input.
Thanks
