Whats exactly the difference. Someone told me trop is rather used for negative situations.

Just to add to Chris' excellent answer please take a look at the answers to a similar question -
Bonne Continuation !
très -- verytrop -- too (much)
That said, trop is often used in spoken French to stress something even beyond using just "very". For example:
Vous êtes très gentil. -- You're very kind.Vous êtes trop gentil. -- You're too kind. Note that even in English, "too" is often used to mean "very", like in this example.
Vous parlez trop vite. -- You're speaking too fast. Here, trop actually means "too much"; you're asking the person to speak more slowly because he's speaking too fast. So, you see, it very much depends on the context in which trop is used whether it is a lot of a good thing or too much.
