Malware - Removing Trovi

For some reason, which I still not sure why, I am hit by Trovi. Trovi is a browser hijacker which is capable of taking over the homepage of your browser. It has no simple way to remove it.

A search on Google has numbers of hit. Personally, I tried MalwareTips (http://malwaretips.com/blogs/trovi-search-removal/) advise and works.

Below are the general steps provide by MalwareTips

STEP 1: Remove Trovi Search browser hijacker from your computer with AdwCleaner (Complete scan in 15 min)
STEP 2: Remove Trovi Search from Internet Explore, Firefox and Google Chrome with Junkware Removal Tool (Complete scan in 10 min)
STEP 3: Remove Trovi Search malicious files with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free (Complete scan in 30 min)
STEP 4: Double-check for the Trovi Search infection with HitmanPro (Complete scan in 30 min, however, you need to manual remove those resulting hits as it is not a freeware)
(OPTIONAL) STEP 5: Reset your browser settings to remove Trovi Search from Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome
