  22. Hii Thank you soo much. Qone8 ads and the pop ads were a nightmare for a long time. I didn’t what to do until I saw this.
    I used Adwcleaner and Malwarebytes to clean, but there’s still one thing that I’m unsure about. When I use Google to search, ads come up in the search results page. Is this normal or is it caused by some virus that are still left?

  23. Qone8 also changes the link in shortcuts of all browsers, once can also remove this by changing the shortcut behavior and removing unwanted programs.

  24. When I enter in the deflaut folder, I see that it is empty.. What should I do?

    • Ralu, Then, you can rename the “default” folder to “default.old” (Note: Make sure that your google chrome should be closed while doing this). Your google chrome should be restored after this.
