It looks like my browser got affected by start.qon8.com. I have it as the started page for all of my browser. How do I remove it. Thanks

Internet options -> change start page and download ccleaner or malwarebytes to completely remove it. I prefer the lather.

You could try the simple procedure offered at
http://www.system-tips.net/remove-qone8-com-uninstall-instructions/

"Qone8 removal from Internet Explorer.
1.Go to “Tools“, select “Internet Options” panel.
2.Click “General” tab.
3.Delete qone8 homepage link and set a new homepage link.
4.Click “Settings” button in the “Search” area, open “Manage Add-ons” panel.
5.Remove qone8, then close “Manage Add-ons” panel.
6.Click “Apply” or “OK” on “Internet Options” panel to apply the changes."

However, if that did not fix things, then you will have to scan with Antivirus and Antimalware programs.

I uninstall Firefox and reinstall it and qone8 is gone. I scan it and remove all malware with malwarebytes. But I still have it in IE and Chrome.

pitachip--For IE did you follow the procedure given in http:#a39617790  ?

Or did you try uninstalling and reinstalling IE and Chrome?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Why not, since that worked for Firefox?

I thought that there is something else I can use without uninstall the browsers. Anyway, I will try that. Thanks

Uninstall of IE worked for me.  Malwarebytes did not remove the hijacking of the start page.

pitachip--Do not forget that you posted that MalwareBytes did not seem to have helped (in http:#a39621434 ) two weeks before havnhavnot 's post.

The solution here would seem to be to Uninstall IE.
