Qone8.com Removal Guide

Qone8.com is a website whose purpose is to act as a search engine. The website assures that it is a reliable search engine and that it provides its users with reliable search results. But this is not the case. The Qone8 search engine often forces itself onto users, rather than ask for consent first. This will happen as soon as the Qone8 add-on is attached to their browser.

When you start using this search engine you will start receiving a multitude of pop-up messages. It will also make changes to your browser’s settings. It will make Qone8.com your default search engine and home page. All of this without your knowledge or consent.

Having this browser hijacker as your search engine will lead to ceaseless redirections to websites that are in no way relative to your searches. Some of the pages may be compromised or malicious. If you are sent to a web page that is managed by hackers, then all kinds of viruses may be transferred to your computer. Their goal will be to find all sensitive information that you store on your PC, like personal details, credit card numbers, online banking accounts and passwords, etc. Then they will establish a connection with the remote cyber criminals and provide them with that information.

Do not let your information get into the wrong hands. Instead, you should completely remove Qone8 from your computer. Though the add-on is not a computer virus, its forceful nature and the risks to which it exposes your system classify it as an unwanted application. This is why you should remove it from your computer as soon as possible.

Follow the instructions below as they will show you how to remove Qone8 from your computer completely. Keep in mind, that it is best to implement an authentic malware detection and removal tool, such as SpyHunter. You can never be entirely sure whether some virus has not made its way onto you system. Use SpyHunter as it will perform a full scan of your PC and remove all found threats.

  15. Linda Jackson says:

    Ciao Mattia,

    Qone8 probabilmente si pone come browser predefinito per IE e Google Chrome , perché modifica di destinazione di scelta rapida per il browser . Penso che se si è modificato il vostro collegamento di destinazione , sarebbe bene.

    Per questo è necessario fare clic destro la scorciatoia browser. Se non si dispone di un collegamento sul desktop , basta fare clic destro sull’icona del browser appuntato sulla barra delle applicazioni e quindi fare clic destro sull’icona del browser menu a discesa di nuovo . Apparirà un altro menu a discesa , fare clic su Proprietà lì . Verrà visualizzato il menu delle proprietà del browser ( vedi foto) .

    Quindi fare clic sulla scheda Collegamento e trovare la linea di destinazione . Troverete una lunga stringa di testo che viene digitato TRA virgolette come “C: \ Programmi \ Google \ Chrome \ Application \ chrome.e … nulla al di fuori delle virgolette è ciò che sta facendo Qone8 tornare ancora e ancora .

    Eliminare tutto ciò che è al di fuori delle virgolette e quindi fare clic su OK per salvare le modifiche . Da lì , basta cambiare la pagina iniziale e il motore di ricerca predefinito tramite le impostazioni del browser ( è possibile ripristinare Internet Explorer , se volete) , e dovrebbe essere un OK .

    Når alt er gjørt, (fjernet installasjon i kontrolpanelet, søk og fjernet alle gjenværende filer som innholder navnet qone8 og programmer installert samme dato og tidspunkt, selv bruker jeg Ccleaner for å rense temp filer, cookies, midlertidig internett filer m.flere) nå gjenstå noe viktig å gjøre.
    Hvis du bruker Internet Explorer. høyre klikk på IE på skrivebord ikonet, egenskaper, hurtigkobling fane, alt bakom “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” må slettes. Det anbefalles, men er ikke nødvendig reboote.
    Lykke til !

    ho così, ma ho ancora qone8 che si apre all’avvio del browser

  20. evi says:

    I have tried all the above and I still cannot get rid of this damned thing. Moreover, when I try to uninstall it from the control panel or the ccleaner, it remains there untouched.

  21. Francesca Ricchi says:

    Grazie dei consigli, ne avevo cercati altrove ma grazie a voi ho subito risolto.

  22. Sudhir says:


    I tried all the steps above but when we restart the pc qone8 is back on all the browsers.
    I tried to remove it with spyhunter. but waste of time.

  23. Niel says:

    How do I get rid of the Qone8 that I find among my other programs? I’ve tried to ‘remove’, but than I have to anwer a dialogbox pop-up, and you simply can not remove the ‘Uninstaller”.
    What to do ?

    Kind regards.
