Browser hijacker Qv06

Hi Everyone!

 

Like a douchebag I am, got my computer infested with Qv06. It seems to go completely under the radar to avoid virusdetectors and I can't find any bulletproof methods to get rid of it. None of the easy tricks work, all that seems to be left is serious play with the registry keys. Before I do that and kill my entire movie collection, have anyone here come across this, done something to it and done something good. Meaning roasted it's sorry bottom.

Hi Pineapple,

 

Please try to run a full scan:

 

1) In the F-Secure Launch Pad, click the "Computer Security" icon.

2) Then go to Settings > Computer section > Manual Scanning.

3) In the Scanning Options, please
i) Uncheck "Scan only known file types";
ii) Check both "Scan inside compressed files" AND "Use advanced heuristics".

4) After that, please run a FULL computer scan.


Also, please try to reset the browser.
