Hi all started this Topic because i've been having fun recently with three client computers infected by the Qvo6 redirector and the solutions offered on this site have not gotten rid of it.

 

I've done all the usual solutions, RKill, ComboFix, SC-cleaner, ADW-cleaner, MalwareBytes,  but to no avail.

 

I then found this article. it is current as in still active with no final solution.

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/506915/qvo6-browser-hijack/

 

I was following is closely as my Qvo6 was also very persistant.

 

I then went into msconfig and disabled everything.

Started rebooting and starting services one by one. Took forever

 

The culprit turned out to be : DPService

 

 

Which is in your log sections as Services safe list.

SRV - (DPService) -- C:\Users\Marnie\AppData\Local\DProtect\DProtectSvc.exe (Woodtale Technology Inc)

 

 

Go rid of this service and all it's installed apps, then

restarted all the start-ups and services that had been stopped with msconfig

Reran sc-cleaner and ADW-cleaner

 

and finally Qvo6 was gone.

 

Hope this helps others.

Thanks Bleepin' Janitor,

 

I do not know how to post or help the guys I referred to in my first link.

 

They are now going down the reset IE path which i will assume will not work.

 

Can you please contact Gringo and suggest stopping the "DPService - from Woodtale tech".. i have found this service on other WEB pages and it is probably a BAD item.

 

Thanks
