    Which browser are you using, because you can find it in the added plug-ins and remove it I suppose.

    Or be more careful when you are installing software always select advanced and you should be given a choice to deselect added tool bars and search engines e.c.t
    I would run a scan with malwarebytes.

    I hate the crapware that some applications and drivers bundle with their software... I have been stuck with qvo6.com malware for ages on my laptop :mad:
