QQovd.com is a clandestine infection in a sense that it is presented in a falsely attractive manner. Even though this browser hijacker has the ability to take over browsers without permission, many computer users ignore this because they find the search provider modifications quite appealing. Of course, if you are reading this report, chances are that you already realize how dangerous this browser hijacker might be. Are you ready to remove QQovd.com from your browsers? If you are, you need to read this report because we have addressed the most common questions regarding this hijacker and its removal.

To begin the story of QQovd.com, we have to mention that this hijacker is identical to 123rede.com, Top8844.com, gamegogle.com, and similar infections, all of which target users living in Brazil. Even though Brazilians are the primary target for QQovd.com, we have found that NanJing WanJuan Info Technology Co., Ltd. is the company that is responsible for the distribution of this hijacker. According to our research, this installer could attach QQovd.com to other infections, and, if this happens, you will need to delete them from your operating system. Unfortunately, we cannot predict if the removal of QQovd.com-related infections will be any less complicated.

As stated previously, QQovd.com can be installed bundled with malware. Even if you manage to delete all infections – which will not be easy – you will not be protected from new threats unless you set up a reliable security system. The search results provided via QQovd.com, the banners, the pop-ups, and the random links to unfamiliar sites could all be used to open up security backdoors. If they are opened, malware could be infiltrated before you know it. Whether you think your operating system is clean or not, we suggest using a malware scanner to inspect your PC and figure out which malicious programs you need to delete from your operating system

If you have tried and failed to delete QQovd.com yourself, it is likely that this browser hijacker has modified your browser settings. QQovd.com can change the Target that, if not set right, might restrict you from removing undesirable home page and search provider tools. Luckily, there is a solution to any problem, and you can fix the Target modifications as well. In fact, this is very simple as all you need to do is remove the hijacker URL and save the changes. If you perform the instructions below successfully, you will be able to remove QQovd.com from your browsers.

Removing QQovd.com from Firefox, IE, and Chrome browsers is not difficult if you change the Target successfully.
