Comments on Qvo6

Thanks,,, it worked.. yeeeeeh
Above procedure worked. However, you also have to remove the browser icon (IE/Chrome) if it is "pinned to the task bar". Qvo6 will still be the default page if you use that icon. You can just "re-pin" it again after. Qvo6 is really is useless and very annoying.
