start qon8

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

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

Or did you try uninstalling and reinstalling IE and Chrome?

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.

"I did not uninstall IE or Chrome"  
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.
