What free malware/adware app?

I have this GD redirect called reimageplus that i cannot for the life of me get rid of. Tried cc cleaner, malwarebytes and adaware with no luck. Is there on that will find this thing? I googled it but everyone wants you to D/L some app thats obviously thier own way of scamming you one way or another. And resetting firefox is not an option, as last time i tried that i lost everything and it was a nightmare.

Resetting Firefox may be the only way to stop the redirects.

Remove ReimagePlus.com pop-up ads (Virus Removal Guide)

Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks | Firefox Help

After your PC is clean why not try Pale Moon.
I like it over Firefox now.

Eh...i just said screw it and reset FF. Sure enough I've been at it an hour and i still can't get it back to where it is. God i hate this ! Now i can't get any of my quick access icons back because they aren't even showing up in the customize list. When i go to customize where you can drag various icons to the tool bar like back and forward arrows, refresh, etc, more than 3/4 of the ones i use like the 2 i just mentioned aren't there.

I would happily trash this browser for another except for one thing....the addons. There are certain ones i MUST have, and i have tried other browsers that are supposed to be able to use the same addons as FF but they didn't work when i tried that.

Pale Moon is what FF use to be like.

All the add-ons I used with FF work with Pale Moon.

Wow, pale moon looks and works just like firefox ! Plus when i imported everything it imported even the old settings i was missing after i reset firefox. Now if it just works better as far as those d@mn redirect issues and not losing everything if i have to reset it or whatever i need to do i'll be a happy man. Thanks. Oh, and i have my addons working with it. It didn't import those but i just reinstalled them and they all work.
