v9.com is a browser hijacker which is also categorized as Ad-ware, PUP. Once you got it install into your computer you you got changed your homepage to www.v9.com.

  1. It worked so good it killed Chrome . V9 is gone. Now I can’t open Google Chrome anymore. It opens and then closes right away. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome with the same result. Now what?

    1. Try to reboot your computer once before reinstall. If get the result then uninstall google chrome once more and then run ccleaner, then reboot your computer and after that finally install google chrome again. If the result same then contact us again.

  2. It first time I use it was to get rid of the v9.com site back in 2014 and it was gone. I decided to use it again in case got some adware. It very reliable

  3. After many attempts I have found useful software. With this tool I resolved my problem with adware in browser. Many thanks and good luck!

  4. go to c:/program file (x86)/MiuiTab/ and run uninstall.exe, close all the infected browsers and delete MiuiTab folder. Restart browser and it’s fixed.

    An absolutely perfect tool. I tried a gazillion other ways to get rid of the v9 search project pest, even following a process that started with adware cleaner –> Junkware removal tool –> Malwarebytes anti malware –> Hitman pro. Why so much effort, using 4 different programs (which did not even do the job)? Your product rocks, 1 program, 1 solution… v9 Search Project GONE! It is such a pity I do not have a credit card or cheque account as I would LOVE to make a donation. THANK YOU GUYS & GALS, you are the BEST!

  6. Worked for me. Not so mad now. Been trying to get rid of v9 for ages. This appears to have done the trick when other things weren’t working. I was that impressed I have donated.

  7. I tried you program but have to give it a failing mark as it does not delete V9.com! I have to repeatedly use the program to do so but it still comes back. Do you have any suggestions?

  35. Your Ad Ware Removal tool worked great in removing the V9.com nasty ad program. Please accept my congratulations for a fine piece of work.

  36. It worded with V9 and stuff but when I downloaded it I got quickstart another browser hijack and supersaver is still on can someone help me? thanks!

  37. Thank you for your detailed removal guide. I was so upset because of this annoying adware. searched saveral times on google but was unable to remove this programme. Now with the help of your instructions i successfully got rid of this adware.
    Thanks a lot for your kind effort.

  38. Great Post!! It was hilarious when you said remove any unwanted search engines and Bing was the one you clicked on.

  39. I tried every step above multiple times and it still failed on chrome. I kept getting the ‘V9 Similar Product’ pop-up ad every time I moused over a product image. Another blog mentioned that extensions can get infected, so I deleted all of my chrome extensions and the problem was solved.

    Even worse, since chrome has you sign in, the infection spread to my other computers as soon as I logged in and launched chrome.

    I later found the problem extension was ‘google docs.’ You might try deleting this one extension first, closing chrome, then re-starting and testing to verify.

    You should then be able to re-install any and all clean extensions.

  40. Thanks very much. I think it has solved the problem as v9.com does not come up anymore when I open my web browser. Thank you for the information on how to get rid of the v9 malware thing. It was really doing my head in!

  41. Thanks for your guide.. I was so worried before.. V9.com and Bing bar search was really making mess with my computer.. I was so frustrated.. But thanks for your guide and information.. The softwear Adw cleaner was wonderful and very helpfull!!!!! Once again thanks for the help!!!

  42. I appreciate the help. I ran ccleaner, it deleted about 30mb of data, put my computer to sleep, started it again, and the problem was gone. Then I tried a restart. When it re-booted, the problem was back. I have now run ccleaner, malwarebytes, adwcleaner, and hitman pro, and I still have the problem. The window opens then closes immediately. A very intractable problem. Do I need to wipe my disk and do a re-build?

    1. No, Do not use the wipe option of ccleaner because it will remove whole drive data, so don’t use.
      It seems like the problem is related to operating system. You should re-create your user account may be it works in new account.

      1. I was going to use Lenovo’s OneKey Recovery to restore the system partition to its original factory status, after backing up my important files. But I will try re-creating my user account first. It’s strange that my computer doesn’t have a problem if I shut it down or put it to sleep, only when I re-start.

  43. Okay, I will try this a second time, since my first comment/question was deleted. I went through all of these steps to try to eliminate v9.com. Now whenever I click on my browser or any other icon, even task manager, the window opens then immediately shrinks. This only happens when I put my computer to sleep or hibernate or reboot. It does not happen when I shut down and restart. Please help

    1. Your comment have not deleted, it just delayed reply due to week off’s. Anyway. I have understand your issue and suggested already you removal of junk files. Please use ccleaner tool to remove all the junk files and registry traces from computer. Then let us know if the problem still persist.

      Thanks

  44. I had the v9.com virus and went through this entire process, with adwcleaner, hitman pro, malwarebytes, registry cleaning etc. I have a unique problem which I have been unable to resolve or find an resolution to on the internet. If I shutdown my computer when I am done using it, then start it up again, I don’t have a problem. But if I restart it or hibernate or sleep, then after the computer is up and running, whenever I click on a browser or a folder or any other icon or program (even when I open Task Manager), the window briefly opens then shrinks again. I am unable to do anything. I have to shutdown and start up again. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Max, Please try ccleaner to fix this issue. ccleaner cleans all the junk files from computer. As my suggestion, there must have some junk files which are making conflicting. Click here to download Ccleaner Tool.
      Please let us know if issue still persist.
      Thanks

  45. the key step for me was to go into Google Chrome settings under “On Startup” and go to “Open a specific page or set of pages. Set pages” and remove v9 there – then I got rid of it. Anyone using Chrome should make sure to do that – it took me a while to find it.
