  57. omg thank you!!! This has helped so much! very easy to follow and removed it successfully. wow 🙂

  58. oh no, spoke to soon. I restarted my browser and the qone8 thing came up again. Although, now when I open other tabs it no longer has qone8 but it is still its main webpage when you open up mozilla. So are the above programs that we can install, successful most of the time for removing this stubben virus? Would really love this removed! have no idea what it is doing to my computer and how i even got it!

  59. i’d like to convey appreciate it for this submit wish anyone pal xoxo.

  60. An easier way to get rid of it without installing any programs is to go into properties and remove it from the target field, there should only be “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” in the field, where as it also has the address for qone8 as well.
    Hope this helps

    • Yes, you are right, it definitely helps. We already shown on above article even with the screenshot. Step heading is: “Remove search.qone8.com infection from Windows shortcuts.”

  61. I tried to get rid of qone8 with all possible anti virus and anti spyware programs, at the end I have backed up everything, deleted and installed windows again.

  62. Thank You!
    This steps heped me to remove this adware.
    I tried every steps, but the winner at me was AdwRemove.
    Thanks again

  63. I can’t seem to change “web data” to “web data.old” A pop up keeps coming stating “action cannot be completed because the file is opened in google chrome.” but i’ve closed my chrome. How?

    • It happens because some files remains active even after closed the google chrome. To successfully do that, please reboot your computer once and then try to rename “Web data” (Note: Do not start Google chrome after reboot). It should be done.

  64. Thank you for getting rid of the Spy Ware, being clever and generous folks

  65. Super Super… It worked for me with Adwcleaner.. I was able to successfully delete the hectic virus – search.qone8.com.
