Chrome; Strange site when opening new tab

When I open chrome (or anotother browser) everything is normal, or at least, seems normal.

When I open a new tab (or a new chrome schreen) using ctrl-N or ctrl-T I get a screen that doesn't show my normal opening page (simple google.nl) but another search page.


Yesterday I though I had the problem covered when I found a search engine unknown by me in the settings. I changed it back and also changed my standard homepage back using the configurationscreen (I assume it's called this way, my version of Windows 7 is in Dutch so I may get some of the names wrong).


Today the home page was changed again into the very same weird search engine .. ( trovi.com )


I suspect there may be malware at work here (and that's kicking in an already opened door I assume). Could you please help me to get rid of it?


Thanks in advance!




edit: found the name of the unintended website; trovi.com
