Qvo6 is a malware which affects your computer specially all your browsers. Although there are some guidelines available on internet which asks you to perform certain steps like removing shortcuts and uninstall addons. Yes, that is right but not the right way to remove Qvo6 type of malwares permanently and completely from your computer.
If you follow these guidelines Qvo6 will be removed from all browsers and from your windows too. Requires little of your time but bring you peace of mind.
Before removing Qvo6 you should understand that removing traces of a virus or trojan or malware is quite difficult and requires good understanding.
1. Remove Files (All basic files that concerns to the virus) 2. Remove Embedded shortcuts from browser. 3. Remove Files within browser cache and registry values. 4. Remove other malware files that are linked with basic malware. 5. Double check with Malware Removal Software.
I am not going to explain everything but will tell you which too is better for which step. With every tool you just need to do Search /Scan and Delete.
For Step 1: Use ADWCleaner
Download it and scan your computer with ADWCleaner. If your computer is infected with some malwares like Qvo6 then it will remove the associated files. Delete whatever it will find.
#NOTE: While installing just install the basic software and not the other tools it will offer during installation. Decline others.
For Step 2: It requires Manual work.
Right Click on your browser (repeat it with all your browsers) and select PROPERTIES (at the bottom).
Go to shortcuts Tab and within Target text area, remove any URL associated. Make sure you don’t remove the location of software.
Repeat this step for all the browsers like Firefox, IE, Opera, Chrome. Actually, this is an embedded shortcut which calls Qvo6.com while starting the browser. Removing this is necessary but not sufficient. Proceed to step 3.
For Step 3: Use JunkWare Removal Tool.
It’s a command prompt utility. Just proceed with it and it will remove all the malicious files associated with your browser cache and registry.
For Step 4: Use Malwarebytes. Althoughh it’s a paid tool but offers limited period free version too. Use it’s free version and perform a quick scan. Being a paid tool, it will show you a detailed report about viruses and malwares or adwares. Remove them.
For Step 5: There is no need to perform step 5 but if you still feels that something is left, then do it too. It’s more like a final check. For step 5 use HitMan Pro. Its again a paid tool but comes with 30 days trial. Use it and remove it when your check is done. If it will found something then remove that too. Although above 4 steps are sufficient for removal of Qvo6 from your windows 7, Windows 8 – Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera.
Removing viruses and malwares is not that easy, you need to remove all traces they leave within your operating system. These traces are the backdoor for the virus to come again and again.
