How to remove Trovi virus

Trovi virus has sneaked into my computer last night. It replaces my Google search to Trovi.com page. When I open Internet Explorer, first thing to appear on the screen is the default page, then after a few seconds it will get redirected to Trovi web site.

I believe the attack started when I downloaded a supposed VLC player. It was required when I am viewing online movies. Before I installed it, I have run an antivirus scan and no threat was found on the file. After installation, I just noticed that many things were added on the browser including Trovi search and Trovi toolbar.

Please tell me how I can remove Trovi virus from my PC. It has taken control of my browsers. I have tried various scans but none of them was efficient in removing the virus. So far, all I have tried are Superantispyware, Adaware, and my local AVG antivirus.

Aside from scanning, I have restored the browser to its default settings as stated in instructions from some web sites; again, I have no success in removing Trovi virus.

Please tell me to get this thing off permanently.

    Trovi will not be listed under extensions unless you have installed it. Go to the library files, find os:c , click on it and you will find it. I know, I removed it from my windows 8.
