    Removing Qvo6.com

    Can anyone help me with the removal of Qvo6.com from my laptop. I am using Windows8 64 bit OS. I have tried Trend Micro House Call, Symantec Free Scan and Windows Defender, none of these picked up the virus or what I think is a virus. I have removed the add-ons from IE and firefox but it still comes back when I start these browsers.
    I would appreciate any help I can get with this problem.
    Kind regards

    Thank you very much for your help.
    Do I have to do any registry editing, because I don't know how to do that safely?

    Kind regards

    Backup your computer prior to starting so that if your attempted fix fails, you may start again from where you left off.
    Once you are successful, make certain you delete the image backup.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
