Windows 7: Wiping Out Everything on Dell XPS 8100 Desktop

This can happen when you don't watch what that you are getting the download from the authors own site or a safe source like FileHippo, or watch every step to anything extra the freeware tries to slip in during install.

Go through Control Panel/Programs now to uninstall anything extra, then check Browser Add-Ons to disable all but flash and reader. Run Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware to clean up Any threats or leftovers.

Watch your Startups on msconfig Startup and Services tabs after Hiding MS Services

When i downloaded those things, some sites i used download.cnet whereas some of them i download directly from the site. I assume its from downloadcnet then?


So hippo is the safe site?


I did check to see programs for installing when installing each one. However winamp seemed to not sure exactly all the details so im thinking it might been that.


As for removing programs all i see now are


adobe flash drive 15 activex
adobe reader xi
bradcom netxtreme i netlink driver and management
google chrome
malware bytes
microsoft.net frameowkr 4.5.4
nvidia 3d vision driver 320.78
nvidia graphics drivers 320.78
nvidia update 1.14.17
panda devices agent
panda free antivirus



Before i installed winamp, adobe flash, vla player, itunes, openoffice... i didn't have all those programs.


Do you think its the microsoft.net.framework? What is the nvidia stuff? Is that it? I didnt have this earlier before installing these programs


I did the malwarebyte scan. I quarantine then deleted it but its still there with trovi.com when starting chrome...

Those look OK. whats Via player? Use authors site or FileHippo. Never CNET.

What's in your AddOns? Do not skip any steps I gave you.

SAS report??

Try System Restore to before you installed those.

Actually i did system restore earlier and it seemed to remove both winamp and VLA player. VLA player is a media player.


Yes i used cnet for most of them.


SAS report?


I did 2 system restores earlier. One didn't work. 2nd one worked and removed winamp, vla player. Also believed he removed adobe flash as well...


So what can i do now? Very frustrated at the moment.

Im not sure what you mean by add ons? You mean chrome and the extensions? If so google docs 0.7 and 0.8 is all there is.


startup only has panda antivirus checked...

What can i do now? I done another system restore back 1 day ago. It worked but i still have the trovi at startup on chrome.


Would just changing the site on settings do anything? It doesn't seem to be the proper way to remove it. It seems like if you just click delete a program on the desktop yet you didn't click uninstall.


What can i do now? The thing is im not sure what caused this. I mean, it could have been itunes right? Because i downloaded itunes directly from itunes so if itunes had trovi... then theres nothing i can do about it.


Very frustrating b/c now i kind of want to just do the reinstall windows 7 yet again because of this unless theres a way to fix this issue and remove trovi the right way. Also making sure i won't download from cnet ever again. I never knew about it has bloatware on it.
