What is browser hijacker?

Browser hijacker is a malicious program, usually a web browser plug-in or add-ons, which modifies web browser settings in order to change default search page, home page, new tab or error page. After that, it starts unwanted redirects to undesirable Internet sites. A browser hijacker also can record all web pages the user visits and send gathered information out through a background Internet connection.

Practically all browser hijackers are created for commercial, advertising or marketing purposes. However, there are lots of malicious versions of these programs that similarly to spyware or adware threats can be installed on the system without user's consent and often hide deep inside the system for avoiding their removal.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by Trovi.com:

•  Changes in homepage and/or default search engine
•  Redirects to websites that are unknown and suspicious
•  Appearance of new tabs
•  Unknown sites in Bookmarks and Favorites list
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

Hi. I successfully removed Trovi from Chrome but Firefox is still opening new tabs to Trovi.com. There are no extensions related to Trovi.com, all my homepage settings are set to blank and I cant find anything else that allows me to change how new tabs are opened. Every time I open a new tab in Firefox, it still goes to Trovi.com, though. Any suggestions?

I have followed all instructions, checked the registry and the task manager process, and the trovi re-direct is still showing up. This was installed with a Gom Player update, and the Gom people should be totally ashamed of themselves. Trovi also results in a noticeable slowdown in the browser response - it should therefore be categorized as a virus rather than a PUP.
