You may encounter dangerous computer infections in the shape of genuine search engines. For example, Qone8 Virus is a browser hijacker that manifests itself in the form a simple search provider. It modifies your browser settings usually without your permission, and then displays third party advertisements in order to make money for associated websites. It is not an extremely dangerous threat, but you simply must remove Qone8 Virus from your computer, as a prolonged stay in your system may result in serious security problems. Do not hesitate to invest in a powerful computer security application to ensure that your system is fully safeguarded against potential threats.

The most disturbing fact about Qone8 Virus is that users often download it onto their computers themselves. It is directly related to such computer infections as PortaldoSites, Delta-Homes, Qvo6 Virus and similar browser hijackers. As you may already know, browser hijackers from this group are usually distributed bundled with freeware applications. Hence, whenever you download a new codec, video player, a video file converter or any other free of charge software application you download from a third party website. Such freeware installation files may also offer you to install additional applications that might not even be useful. Qone8 Virus is one of those additional programs that users install accidentally without even checking what exactly they are choosing to install.

At first it may seem that Qone8 Virus is a legitimate search engine which has been developed by Taiwan Shui Mu Chih Ching Technology Limited. However, it is very likely that it is a made-up company that is used to cover all the malevolent intentions. After all, Qone8 Virus is responsible for displaying third party advertisements that expose you to a potentially dangerous content. In such case, Qone8 Virus cannot be held responsible for it, because the search engine provides privacy policy where it claims that third party content is not a subject to Qone8 Virus privacy policy. Hence, even if you are exposed to potentially malicious links via these ads, you cannot blame anyone but yourself.

Of course, it is not a given that Qone8 Virus will eventually lead you to other even more dangerous malware infection, but it is in your best interest to delete Qone8 Virus from your computer and restore your browser settings to default. To make sure that you remove the infection for good, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. If any additional infections are detected, delete them automatically with malware removal tool.
