Anybody know how to get rid of the V9 virus? I updated a program to the latest version and refused all the additional offers like toolbars etc. but after I was done V9 had taken over my IE browser.I tried all the hints on Google like running Malwarebytes,virus scans and Manage add-ons,but nothing worked.

Try this, Geo. I found several sites claiming to remove V9 that were red-flagged by WOT, so be careful about a web search unless you have WOT installed. This one was green-lighted.

Remove V9

What program were you updating? Just curious.

Wow,that worked. Thanks for the info.
I was updating a download manager.

Thank heavens! You might want to notify the download manager site - assuming there is a way to do so - that their software is infected. Again assuming they didn't infect it themselves.
