What is Qvod?

Qvod is a program which is basically published for those computer users who live in China because its entire interface is in Chinese and there are no possibilities to choose another language. Qvod is not the program which you want to keep onto your computer because it does not anything beneficial. Instead, once it gets onto your computer, it is going to change your default homepage and your preferred search engine. You will not be able to change them back unless you remove Qvod from your computer. This browser hijacker might cause harm to your computer, even though it might seem as a decent tool. You should know that you will not be able to get rid of it easily as it is compatible with all the major browsers, which is why we recommend using a reliable antimalware tool.

How does Qvod work?

Our researchers have found that Qvod acts rather aggressively because it not only hijacks your search engine and your homepage, but also installs kuaiwan and QMovie without your permission. Besides, it is going to modify win.ini file of your system which is responsible for windows initialization. What is more, you are going to see various advertisements, which might not only interfere with your browsing activities, but also expose you to malicious software. If you want to keep your computer safe, do not click on those ads even though they are really eye-catching and might look entirely inoffensive. If you click on any of them, you will be definitely redirected to other websites which might be full of malicious software.

Furthermore, it is very probable that Qvod is collecting information related to your browsing habits as well, for instance, your overall browsing history, the content that you access on the internet as well as the search queries that you enter into your search box.
