How to remove from Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer.

Solved Answer.

Trovi is a search engine that displays lots of advertisements while you are searching through That’s why it is called a browser hijacker, adware or PUP.

Once you are infected with you may see many other changes on your computer. Default search engines can change, search provider DNS settings, URL redirection, homepage can default to and many other settings can be affected. These settings will no revert to their original status automatically when Trovi is removed, you have to change them back manually to default factory settings. is an another url which redirects to as well. often infects a system when someone unwittingly downloads free software. For example you may download a free pdf reader from a third party website (not Adobe). The pdf reader software only appears to be free, it is actually paid for by the advertising that ends up on your PC through You should be aware of this type of scam when you download “free” software and consider using trusted websites, software and suppliers.

Once your PC is infected by the processor and browser can be slow. This is because installs as an Add-on to your browser and it plasters advertising into all of the advertising space on the website you are viewing.

When installs it creates a number of registry entries and miscellaneous junk files. Typically you won’t find these files as they are not kept in a single location. While the uninstaller for removes these files it does not remove all the traces of its workings in the registry so this needs to be done manually.

  38. Maddee says

    I followed your instructions to remove from my computer, then unsure whether I’d done it right, used your Adware Remover Tool. It appears that the problem is solved. Thank you.

  39. Eva says

    thanks for the tool, unfotunately my adw cleaner still shows me this under chrome: ###### C:\user\…\AppData\Local\Google\User Data\Default\preferences ######
    The start url for trovi and all the other stuff is removed only this shows up and if I delete it with adw cleaner the next time I do a adw search its back 🙁

    Any ideas?

    1. Techexpert says

      Eva, You got misunderstanding about it. Actually, this is just a title of the path where adwcleaner searches for infection of Google Chrome. Infection should be listed after this line: “###### C:\user\…\AppData\Local\Google\User Data\Default\preferences ######”. This is a default line. It’s not a infection. It just show you the location where is Google chrome installed.

  40. Jerry says

    Thanks for getting rid of trovi. Software is great.

  41. ornella says

    Thank You all so much. I spent a while trying to remove trovi but to no avail, because they were not listed on the install programme listing. Within minutes your software uninstalled it, to think I was even worried about installing it. Will definitely donate and promote to my friends.

  42. Greg P. says

    Thank you, Thank you. Used Adware Removal Tool and had Trovi and other pests off my computer in less than 5 min. Was a little confused in the beginning because of reference to other programs like Adwcleaner, Hitman-Pro and Malwarebytes. But decided to use Adware Removal and it worked wonderfully. Thanks again. Donation coming.

  43. Warren says

    This program solved my Trovi infestation. Great program. Fast and light.

  44. Jordan says

    Simply amazing this software found 179 objects that my own adware software was ignoring. It deleted exactly everything i needed and my computer is back to normal THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

  45. Mario says

    Simply amazing, I really like it, and if I was older i would, without second thought, donate 😀 In a year I’m gonna do so

  46. Dajo says

    Big thank you!
    Ouf! I’ve struggled in the pass with issue in the past, used big names Antivirus, even to point of reinstalling Windows just to end up getting caught by Trovi again. I couldn’t even find where the little bugger was hiding in my system. THanks to your detailed instructions and to AdwCleaner my divorce with Trovi is final! You’re Genius!

    I had a search engine hijacker which tho was named “” …I believe was a Trovi. I tried changing everything in my Firefox and homepage functions to absolutely no avail. I tried Malwarebytes and HitmanPro and it was still there. I read somewhere that they could hide in a shortcut on the desktop. So I deleted the desktop shortcut and also the one in “All Programs”…then went to the Program File for Mozilla and created a new shortcut icon on the desktop from that…and VOILA…no more hijacker…yeeaaaahhhh!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey Guys,

    I never comment on these things but I found their solution so unnecessary Here is the short version:

    1. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) -> Uninstall a Program.

    2. Here, look for Trovi, Trovi Toolbar; Conduit, Search Protect and similar entries and select Uninstall/Change.

    3. Click OK to save the changes

    AND DONE! (Trovi just hides itself under different program names to make it hard to delete it from your computer!)

  131. Ana says

  142. ChuckH says

    I downloaded and ran adware per instructions. It did find some malware and removed them. However, I still have the trovi menu bar on the top of my screen. It is always there even when the browsers are closed. None of the helpful hints worked. Is there anything I have missed??

  143. Judith Reynolds says

    I have had no luck with removing my problem. It is a particularly pernicious pop up which hijacks Chrome browser. The website it reports is:
    Fatal- windows.pcerror
    The advert offers the number 0800 808 5278 – of course I have not called!
    This seems to affect both IE and Chrome.
    I am running Windows 7.
    Any suggestions?

  150. SanfordBob says

    Tried dozens of suggestions from others to no evail.
    I found this site on my computer(Win7 Pro). When I tried to get back to it on an infected PC (Win7 Home) received a WEB PAGE NOT FOUND screen. I searched the registry and found a Trovi entry with this sites URL. I deleted it at the root(left side). That fixed the access problem. Also I tried to download AdwCleaner thru the link above and it failed. I found what looks to be the authors site.
    “ v4.208” and he’s working on v5.0.
    Downloading freeware is a scary thing but it worked. You just have to review all the data under each tab. I found a lot of items. I only allowed it to delete what I was sure of.
    Also, I had to go to Control Panel/NetworkandInternet/InternetOptions/UseDefault(button) replace the Search URL with and APPLY. You may have to do someother URL.
    I hope the URL above doesn’t get clobbered.
    Sorry if i’m redundant didn’t read all the comments.

  151. RCS says

    Fast and easy virus removal tool! Got rid of Trovi in minutes! Soooo worth the donation!

  152. Cheri says

    When I try to uninstall what I think may be Trovi, I get

    “you do not have sufficient access to uninstall DefaultTab. Please contact System Administrator.”

    I haven’t seen anyone else post this issue. Help!

    1. Techexpert says

      You have to uninstall it through REVO uninstaller tool, if you get this error message. It removes this type program which doesn’t uninstall itself.

  153. Matija says

    Thanks a lot for helping me <3

  154. Meheruba says

  155. Larry Esposito says

    I cannot thank you enough for your fantastic tool for finding adware and any other malware that drops itself onto my machine. I use it at least twice a month (updated, of course) and trust it completely. I had the trovi virus over a year ago and all efforts failed at removing it. Any other programs simply could not get rid of it. Yours did! And quickly. I tell everyone about your program and how wonderful it is. Just ran it again after getting a redirect and it got rid of all of it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. The leading spyware product out there was not able to get rid of trovi after each restart. YOURS DID!!!!!

    You should consider a paid product — even though I think this is against your principles.
