go to the very bottom and where it says

trovi

Thanks Jerry, but you forgot to mention that this trovi bug comes bundled with adware and PUPs. PUP means a potentially unwanted program. Besides, certain variants are promoted via PPI networks and they are usually more aggressive. They hijack browsers' shortcuts. Browser reset won't make any changes to shortcut files.

Resetting your web browser is not enough you also need to scan your computer with malware removal tools, Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner for example.

You may want to avoid Download.com's installer. Plenty written about that.

BOYCOTT CNET.DOWNLOAD.COM ALTOGETHER - THIS CRAP SUCKS

The crap that they put in their downloader is hidden and unavoidable. Boycott download.com and anything to do with CNET. Imagine the stress and heartache put on the elderly that don't know how to deal with this stuff. CRAP.
