I am getting tired of http://www.trovi.com changing my home page. How can I block this website from making changes to my computer? I remove it from my home screen in the "control panel" I also have it on the list of blocked websites. It still comes in and changes my default home screen and also bumps firefox home screen out. Please help!

hello tac3585n, this sounds like a problem possibly caused by adware that is already running on your pc.

  1. please go to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > extensions & remove any suspicious entries (toolbars, things that you have not installed intentionally, don't know what purpose they serve, etc).
  2. also go to the windows control panel / programs and remove all toolbars or potentially unwanted software from there.
  3. finally, run a full scan of your system with different security tools like the free version of malwarebytes & adwcleaner, which are specialised in adware and browser hijackers.
