QV06 menace

QV06 This is a Windows problem. Linux and Apple don’t seem to suffer from these opportuntistic, vile downloads. QV06 is a nasty virus-like acquisition which you can unwittingly download. Not exactly sure how I got it but probably the freeware I downloaded last weekend. Freeware will often come with extras you don’t want but they are often programmes which are helping to support the freeware site. At no stage did I see QV06 nor was it offered as a download option like reputable extras. QV06 is not readily identified as malware by malware search software. You know you have it. It sets itself up on any browser as the homepage and takes you to that site. If you try and remove it as the home page, it just puts itself back. I did the obvious and removed it from my computer and went into my registry and took out the files which seemed to be associated with it. It is invasive. It still loaded. It was slowing my browsers and stopping me some doing some of the things I wanted to do, most notably with Flash files. I did a search on it and it is very well known! Not surprised. Nothing suggested worked since I had thought I had removed the files. My cleaners couldn’t seem to identify it as malware. Wonder why because they do a great job with everything else? My solution was to download a free Adware removal programme. That fixed the problem and got rid of the QV06 files. Now, once a week , I’ll be back to running an Adware programme. I always used to and then the new cleaners seemed to be able to catch everything. Not any more! Can’t believe how fast my browsers are running again
