I would just like to thank you so much for helping me get rid of that awful QV06 with Combofix.


The damn thing wont let go though as it is trying to sneak in again by trying to piggy back onto any new downloads I do, so far today a reminder popped up for an update to Adobe reader AVG tried to warn me but I let it through and just as I was about to download the update I noticed in small writing use QV06 as default browser and then deleted the download ...phew close one' then I tried to open Video downloader Professional and there QV06 again.


I have just scanned with your ADW cleaner and it deleted several files which my rootkit scanner found earlier (wasent sure if they were dangerous so left them) I really hope this will fix QV06 once and for all  I will have to be very careful anyway.


Hope there is a safe place I can download from as these rotton things seem to infiltrate every where.

There are safe places to download items, but just like with any event in life you must always approach with caution and doublecheck everything as sometimes even the clean places get infected by a no-gooder and must clean themselves up.


We are all glad to help, although I was not on the team who helped you.  Good luck in your future downloading endevors.
