I appear to have had my browser hijacked by v9.com browser hijacker.
Is there an easy way to remove this from my computer? I am on Windows 7 Home Premium Service pack 1 if that is of any use.
Thanks in advance.

That's quite interesting to me. Just today I noticed that on my computer. I have no idea how it got there. I went to control panel and it was listed in the programs, both a program and a tool bar. I uninstalled them both and ran both Spy Bot, and my antivirus program. Neither found anything. So far, so good.

Even though I have ThaiVisa set as the home page Chrome always opens with V9.
Cannot seem to find a way to get rid of it.

I have just tried that and I'm currently running antivirus now. When I googled it, there seems to be talk of delting certain registry files and I didn't wanna delete anything I wasn't supposed to so I thought I'd ask on here first. Hopefully this will work though!
You should try and do what @Gary A did as it appears to have gone away on mine. Just running antivirus programs now. Also... You have your home page set to ThaiVisa?

I had this with windows XP two weeks ago. I draged the internet Explorer Icon from the start menu onto desktop page then deleted the Icon with V9.
Might not work for you but it did for me.

Just go Computer ... Control Panel ... Programs ... Uninstall a Program and it will more than likely be the last program, has a V9 in the name. I think now you get a response in Thai ... Just uninstall it and then go back and put your home page to what you want.Using Computer ...Control Panal ... Netwirk and Internet ... Internet Options ... Change Your Home Page.

You can remove the IE/Chrome/Firefox shortcut from the desktop and recreate a newone from IE/Chrome/Firefox folder in Program Files folder.

v9.com virus is a typical browser hijacker that bundles with free software downloaded
