Welcome to the forum, Taz.

 

You might have luck with this Removal Guide:

Remove V9.com Homepage (Uninstall Guide)

 

Commentary

 

  • You might skip Step #4 if you do not want to install the program shown.  Registry cleaners can be at least a nuisance and at worst, they can actually damage your File System.

 

  • Step 5 recommends the use of the Free software, Malwarebytes - this software has a good reputation and may help.

 

  • You might skip Step 6 if you do not want to install the program shown.  It may be good s/w, but it appears that it wants you to purchase it -- the step does say you can use it as a "Trial Version".

 

All in all, I think that once you complete the first steps, that you might run a deep scan with your own Anti-Virus software and with the Malwarebytes software.  If you are in more trouble than that, you will have to decide what to try next.
