Hi!

Yes. I have installed the browser repair. And I have deleted the qvo6 shortcut target as well. There are no peculiar extensions for IE as well. Chrome is already fixed but my IE has not been fixed yet. Thanks.

Hi,
Could you please manually check the search provider? To do that, please follow steps below:

1), Open Internet Explorer. Go to Tools → Manage Add-ons,
2), Select Search Providers, check if qvo6.com still exist here, if you find it, please choose Bing search engine or Google search engine and make it your default web search provider (Set as default).
3), Then select qvo6.com and click Remove to remove it.


Alternatively, please check your host file:

1) Go to: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc.
2) Double-click “hosts” file to open it. Choose to open with Notepad.
3) The default hosts file should be only one line: 127.0.0.1 localhost in Windows XP and 127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 in Windows Vista. If there are more, then remove them and save changes.
