Yesterday, I downloaded VLC player (for MPEG-2 TS Video) from AfterDawn(dot)com. Shortly after I noticed my IE home page was changed to trovi(dot)com. Obviously, you can't just go to Internet Options and change your home back to its original settings nor can you disable the Trovi malicious effect from the IE browser by disabling it from the "add-on" in browser settings. The solution given by the Microsoft community seems to work amazingly great which is to download a adware cleaning software like the AdwCleaner.
Anyway, as the day went by, I notice the Trovi/AfterDawn malicious effect has disabled my capability to browse any sites (Yahoo, Google, NYTimes, Ebay and so on). As soon as I enter any web address, I am directed to a page with Search Error Results from the Trovi Search Engine, a container of excrements that was imposed upon my by AfterDawn.com. It is so lamenting that AfterDawn has to masquerade as a media player solution site.
