What makes you feel A/V programs (alone) will remove the browser hijacker? What if it takes more than Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to remove it? Were the tools and methods in the below guides, part of the "previous solutions" you tried?
Remove Trovi from Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer
How to remove Trovi Search
Note in the 2nd guide where it states:
'Trovi Search got on your computer after you have installed a freeware software (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had bundled into their installation this browser hijacker. Very often users have no idea where did it come from, so it's not surprising at all that most of them assume that Trovi is a virus.'
And in the 1st guide where it states:
'Trovi Search and trovi.com are increasingly being bundled with programs. During installation, the user might be given the option to modify the home and search pages, however this is often checked by default and overlooked. Should the software be removed from the user's computer, the settings will need to be manually reverted back.'
Give them a try, if you haven't done so already.
Best of luck,
This problem dates back as far as 2009 or earlier. And is still occuring as of 10/26/2014. Each time I open any browser, although the home page is set to a specific URL (mine just happens to be "about:blank") the Browser is trespassed on and Pirated to some other search or other URL. (internet options home page, will remain unchanged)
Currently, mine is redirected to trovi search (Microsoft).
Previously, it was redirected to Bing Search (Microsoft).
Thus I am convinced that Microsoft is the Trespassing Pirate, and I am sick of it.
Please any give me the real answer. I have followed all previous solutions, including Malwarebytes, and various other anti virus program, to absolutely no avail.
Please, someone surely knows the answer. Why do I have to be subject to such a sneaky, and should be illegal, activity?????
