Having recently fighted one of those annoying Qvo6.com hijackers, I think that HiJackThis needs to check the shortcuts (.LNK files) of the main web browsers in the system.

I couldn't for the life of me detect where was the damn qvo6.com hiding, and it turned out to be the shortcut to iexplore.exe in the desktop (a .LNK file)
