Users comments about

Your removal instructions are not as simple as that. There are at least a dozen, if not more, registry entries that keep redirect virus alive and well. You will need a program called SpyHunter 4 (best choice) or Anvi Slim ToolBar (second choice) to fully remove the entire virus which include registry entries, folders and files on your computer.
