anybody know how i can get rid of this? everytime i use my chrome it just automatically takes me to a random page which chrome cant open anyway because of no secure connection. checked my search engines and google, bing and yahoo only no trovi. reset chrome completely but still comes back. done the chrome clean up my computer but no harmful files found. got malaware installed and done full scan, nothing. done avast antivirus full system scan, nothing, everything updated. my laptop is brand new, bought only 2 months ago from reputable uk large retailer.

ive searched online but all online solutions are like 2-3 years old. and this malware is more hidden. ive tried following those solutions but again to no avail, cant find any unauthrosied or non genuine programme on my windows programmes list. im on windows 10. i dont have any inappropriate or malicious programme installed knowngly but cant seem to find to this trovi programme anywhere.

It is likely to be some add-on/extension or hidden setting in Chrome.

This needs further analysis by a malware removal specialist:
