My PC has been infected with loads of free adware, trojans, and viruses over the past two days, been fighting them off as they come in >:(

every time i try to look something up it comes on as trovi

Bing snagged control of my browser first, then this trovi page popped up after that. It says it's powered by Bing, so I figure it's owned by Bing. Bing should have to pay to remove this crap. I've tried and tried to remove this to no avail. I did get rid of it on firefox by deleting firefox and re-installing it. Chrome and MSE, nothing seems to get rid of it. I dislike Bing to the point where I sill not use it EVER. No reputable company would do this to people.

I hate Trovi! It makes Google Chrome sooooooo slow! Thank goodness there are apps that can remove it like this one! Go enigma software!
