Qvo6 (also known as qvo6.com) is a sneaky search engine, which belongs to the same company as PortaldoSites.com. Just like this site, qvo6 is promoted using unfair distribution techniques. After a small research it has been revealed that this website is closely related to browser hijacker, which doesn't ask victim's permission when it decides to get inside the system. As soon it does that, it modifies computer's parameters and sets qvo6.com or search.qvo6.com as a start page or default search engine. Basically, this virus can pose a harm for your computer no matter that it doesn't have a malicious script embedded. The main reason why you should stay away from qvo6.com is that it can easily return forged search results and redirect you to the site that promotes malware. In addition, it shows continuous pop-up ads and may track its victims for using this data in the future. That's why we recommend avoiding qvo6.com and using other, more reputable, search engines when browsing on the Internet.
