Remove QQovd.com from Google Chrome, Firefox & IE
What is QQovd.com?
QQovd.com is a browser hijacker aimed at Brazilian computer users, however, it may enter your system even if you are from a different country. The infection gets promoted with the help of free downloads. Its installer is signed by NanJing WanJuan Info Technology Co., Ltd, which has been linked to unreliable programs. Once the hijacker gets installed, it alters your web browser settings including your home page, new tab, and default search provider. This is done in order to present you with a variety of commercial ads and sponsored links. Since the main purpose of the application is to generate web traffic, it will make sure that you run into advertisements no matter where you go online. If you want to go back to uninterrupted and safe online surfing, we suggest that you get rid of QQovd.com as soon as possible.
How does QQovd.com work?
QQovd.com belongs to the same company that is responsible for Gamegogle.com, Jogostempo.com, Top8844.com, and some other hijackers. All of them work in the same manner. After the installation, QQovd.com replaces your home page, new tab page, and default search engine. The site that appears in your browsers is filled with commercial data. You will see quick access buttons, advertisements, links, and other features on it, most of which we do not recommend clicking on. In fact you should not interact with the page at all, because it may reroute you to unreliable websites. Even clicking on the search box that appears at the top of the page initiates a pop-up advertisement.
Unfortunately, the ads will not be limited to the hijacker’s main page. You will see them on other sites that you visit as well. Needless to say, all of this unnecessary activity will slow down your Internet surfing speed. You may also experience other unwanted symptoms including random redirects, computer performance issues, tracking cookies, and more. The sooner you delete QQovd.com, the better.
