    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.

  • Austin:

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

  • Yoka Snytsheuvel:
