How to remove Qvo6?

Post by bigfruit on 14th May 2013, 8:46 am

I keep getting redirected to websites I don't want, and I think Qvo6 is the reason for it, but I don't know how to remove it. What should I do? Please (puppy eyes)

Hello and welcome to GeekPolice.Net My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

After doing the manual removal i downloaded Malwarebytes from here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and i did a scan with it. some other infections showed up also, but after the second scan it says that no threads were found.

Beware of sites that ask you to download a special tool to get rid of something. That's probably how your computer was infected the first time. I seriously doubt that your computer is clean. Absence of symptoms does not mean that the infection is completely gone but if you're happy, that's all that counts.

But the search from adwleaner showed no threads. I also ran a scan with avast and it did not find any viruses Please (puppy eyes)
I did all of the steps from the removal guides, except for this Junkware Removal Tool.
