You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs, such as this adware. Be very careful what you agree to install.
Adware gets 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.

You can use the below steps to revert back to adware-less Firefox.


1) Reset Prefs

  • Navigate to about:config in your Address Bar
  • Press the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button to proceed
  • Search for Trovi and reset all prefs that pull up by right clicking > Reset

2) Remove any programs that you don't recognize or remember installing from your Control Panel (Start > Control Panel > Uninstall a Program)


3) Remove any extensions that you don't recognize or remember installing from Firefox.

  • Firefox 29 and above:(Press the menu button (new fx menu > Add-ons > Extensions)
  • Firefox 28 and below:(Go to the orange Firefox button > Add-ons > Extensions)

4) Download ADW Cleaner to wipe out any remnants of the adware.

Hi,

I personally think that thoroughly removing Conduit Search Protect/ Conduit Toolbar/ any other Conduit-related bars should resolve your Trovi redirection. Additionally, I suggest you examine your program settings (add/remove, programs & features), remove PUAs (Possibly Unneeded Applications) as the said Trovi usually comes with foistware; perform a virus scan under Safe Mode using an up-to-date anti-spyware software like Avast!.
