October 17, 2013

Qone8 is a browser highjacker.  This is commonly referred to as the Qone8 virus.  In most cases users have their browser default home page changed to Qone8 search page.  This search page has ads on it that make Qone8 money.

People are paid money to spread this highjack.  They spread Qone8 via download packages.  This download package normally contains a free toolbar or free games download.

To avoid getting infected with Qone8 you can either ignore free games and toolbars or you have to use an antivirus client that can detect such threats and block the install of the threat or easily remove the threat.  The program RemoveVirus.org has been recommending now for over a year is SpyHunter.  This antivirus client stops ALL programs from changing your home page and will stop the Qone8 virus in it’s tracks.

No clear damage is being done by this Highjacker to the main operating system files.  By the strictest definition of a computer virus this is not really a virus.  A browser hijacker can be a virus but this is more adware then anything else.  Still it’s annoying as hell and if your on our website you want it removed.

Qone8 Highjacker effects several browsers including Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Manual Directions to Remove Qone8 From All Three Browsers

Words of Caution:  While manual removal is possible you have to run a virus scan.  If Qone8 is on your system you most likely have other items on your computer as well.  We recommend you scan with Spyhunter which can be downloaded here.  If you purchase the client it can automatically remove Qone8 for you.  The free version still will offer some protection and prevent your home page from being highjacked in the future.

How to Easily Delete Computer Viruses

Worked for a short time at a big box computer retailer who I felt was ripping the public off by charging outrageous fees to delete virus’s from customers pc’s.

 

when you suspect you have a virus, the best fix is to turn off your computer completely. If the power to your computer is off, the virus can’t do any damage. But at some point, you will have to turn your computer on to delete the virus and take back control of your system. In today’s episode, I’ll walk you through how to do just that! One thing to keep in mind: This method is somewhat complicated and involves many steps, but in most cases it is a surefire way to eliminate any malware from your system with only minor headaches.

How to Eliminate Viruses From Your System

Step 1 – Most of the time, a computer virus can’t run without your operating system running as well. This is the case with Linux, Mac, and Windows machines. As long as you don’t start your operating system, the virus remains essentially frozen, and has no way to hide, fight back, or transmit information. The goal here is to freeze the virus so you can find it, delete it, and move on with your life. There are a number of tools that will give you this power over the virus. My favorite is the operating system that will run on a CD/DVD or a USB stick designed by the brilliant software engineers at Kaspersky Lab. And luckily for all of us, Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is available for FREE Once you download this software, the helpful guide on the site will give you step by step instructions on how to turn a USB drive or a CD/DVD into a virus killing machine! I won’t go over how to do this step-by-step, but if you are having any problems, stop by the Tech Talker Facebook page where we will be having a discussion on people’s experiences with this program. Step 2 – Once you have your CD/DVD or USB drive all set up with the virus-destroying program, insert either one into your computer and turn it on. What comes up next will not look like your normal computer; rather you will be running a new operating system from the disk you just created! To clarify a little bit, this CD/DVD or USB drive you created has a fully functional operating system built into it. When your computer starts to run it, everything gets loaded into the RAM of your computer which, if you remember from my earlier podcast on how a computer works, is like the work bench of the computer. The hard drive has little to no interaction here, which is good because we want the virus to stay frozen. From here, Kaspersky will boot up and do its magic. Take a look at this video to preview the process. Step 3 – If you follow the video, it will show you how to update and scan your system. Once the scan finishes, it will ask you to review the files that were infected, and then clean them. After you give the all clear, Kaspersky takes care of the rest and bam—your computer will be good to go! Just remove the CD/DVD or USB drive and your computer should start up just as it did before, only virus-free. How to Protect Your System From Future Invaders I recommend keeping the USB drive or CD/DVD in a drawer just in case this sort of thing ever happens in the future. I actually keep a USB drive with Kaspersky on my key ring, just in case! 5 Quick and Dirty steps to deleting computer viruses: #1 A virus on your machine needs your operating system in order to run. #2 By creating a CD/DVD or USB drive with the special virus-killing tool on it, we can keep the virus frozen as if the power to your regular operating system were still off. #3 While the virus is frozen, we can scan, edit, and delete the offender. #4 Once we remove the virus, your computer should be completely healthy and back to normal. #5 It wouldn’t hurt to do a few more scans with your traditional antivirus software such as Microsoft Security Essentials or Sophos, just in case. – See more at: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/tech/computers/how-to-easily-delete-computer-viruses?page=all#sthash.Ygkz9axx.dpuf
