The descriptions from two computer users who are infected by Trusted-offer.com Redirect Virus:

About 2 weeks ago, when I clicked on a link in Google Chrome, I would get a new window with an advertisement appearing.   It took me a while to see. Then I noticed that before the advert. page loaded there was an interim web address in the URL window.  It was www.trusted-offer.com/trusted-offer.com page, but it is just a list of product categories that you can search through.  There is no contact information for the trusted-offer entity, or any published info. on how to get out of their clutches.

What is trustedoffer.com, other than extremely annoying, and how do I get rid of it, since un and reinstalling firefox didn’t help??
