will reformatting my laptop get rid of the awful redirector i have? I wont even consider it if it isn't 100% sure to get rid of it.


I'm waiting for a reply in the log forum (which i will wait for first) but i was wondering if a reformat would do the trick.

Of course it will. That will wipe the slate clean
You would have to reinstall everything.
My advice would be to only do so as an absolute LAST RESORT!

Wait for the malware team to assist you
In the beginning there was the command line.
