    Do NOT download the software this site is suggesting.
    If you don't want to manually remove this redirector, use these (all free):

    RKILL
    RKill Download
    ADWCleaner
    Downloads - AdwCleaner - ToolsLib
    JRT
    Junkware Removal Tool Download
    Malwarebytes Antimalware (with Rootkit selected)
    Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Malware Removal

    You may need to manually reset all your browsers after these scans.

    One thing you should be aware of, once you run RKill do NOT reboot your PC. RKill will attempt to terminate all malware processes, and after it is run, immediately run a Malware scanner. If one of the scanners asks you to reboot, then once that has completed, run RKill again & move on to the next scanner.

    As RKill only terminates a program's running process, and does not delete any files, after running it you should not reboot your computer as any malware processes that are configured to start automatically will just be started again. Instead, after running RKill you should immediately scan your computer using some sort of anti-malware or anti-virus program so that the infections can be properly removed.

    *sigh* There are so many of these sites to catch out the unwary, they pop up regularly in any search. They seem designed to use your search string and repeat it back to you parrot-fashion with some generic advice attached that's 'for experts only'. Then they suggest you download their 'tool', but the small print always says "The free version ... only supports the malware scan. If you want to want to clean all detected threats, you need to buy its registered version."

    At best it's a con-trick to get you to pay for something you could do for free. At worst it's a source of further malware.

    Thank you lol, to be honest I never even looked at that posts link, it seemed weird due to the way the sentence was structured.
