The content that this search tool represents is highly unpredictable, which means that you might get into trouble every time you use it. Unfortunately, many users have no idea how to delete Aqovd.com. If you replace this search tool with the preferred one in a regular manner, you will find Aqovd.com restored the next time you launch your browser.

Aqovd.com can change the properties of the infected browser to stop you from removing this unreliable search tool. Our researchers have found 123rede.com, Top8844.com, gamegogle.com, and a bunch of other browser hijackers to work in the same manner. In fact, these infections were created by the same people who stand behind Aqovd.com, which is why we believe that they can be deleted using the same removal methods.

Some users do not realize that Aqovd.com is an unreliable search tool, even if it takes over the browsers completely illegally. Just like any other reliable search engine, Aqovd.com presents such search tools as Web, Images, Videos, and News. It also offers a link to Games (jogotempo.com) and another one to Forum. On top of that, it suggests an array of links to popular websites placed according to categories, including Hot, Video, Games, and Shopping. Since these links usually route to familiar sites, users do not even think about removing Aqovd.com. What is more, if you enter keywords, you will be routed to google.com, which is a trustworthy search tool. Does that mean that you can postpone the removal of Aqovd.com? You cannot because the search results could still be modified! Do you want to interact with links, ads, and search results that are untrustworthy? If you do not, remove this hijacker ASAP.

It is essential that you install automatic malware detection and removal software as soon as malicious threats enter your PC.

If you do not secure your operating system, it does not matter if you delete Aqovd.com successfully, as other threats will be able to attack. Unfortunately, you will have to perform the removal of Aqovd.com yourself. Even though the manual removal operation might seem daunting, we can guarantee that you will delete this browser hijacker if you follow our removal instructions cautiously.
