Also, in addition to what Friend indicates in the post located above this post,

What, and why: Trovi It is not malware. It is not an illegal trojan, not an illegal virus, not an illegal rootkit.

It is Legal junkware. It is much easier to remove than it is to remove illegal malware. The user downloaded it and installed it. It is legal; it has a eula.

Cause: Caused by someone downloading junk. Junk that is downloaded from download sites comes bundled with more junk. Or: Downloading ok stuff from a download site. Ok stuff that is downloaded from download sites is bundled with junk.

Prevention: Only download ok stuff, and only from the original source, not from a download site.

Cure: Kaspersky Settings > Additional > Threats and exclusions > Detection types > enable Detect Other Software.
and do a databases update > reboot, then do a scan.

Clear the contents of your Temp folder, instructions: http://support.kaspersky.com/1161  and then reboot.

After that, uninstall any recently installed junk > reboot.

After that, uninstall any and all junk toolbars > reboot.

Uninstall/disable any and all junk browser add-ons and extensions and plugins in all of your browsers.

Remove the junk argument from the target field of the browser shortcut properties.

Remove any and all junk search providers in all of your browsers.

Then if need be, change your home page, in all of your browsers.

How to clean up your browsers: http://support.kaspersky.com/us/viruses/solutions/10319

If you are using a router, reset the router, change the router password to a strong password, enter the correct information according to your internet providers instructions, then clear browser cache and cookies, reboot.
 

P.S.

 

Pardon my naivete, what do you mean by “junk”?
