|I had this horrible adware too and tried all the solutions I could find through Google but still didn't get rid of it. Eventually I downloaded a free copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (for Mac). Ran it, deleted all the suggested files (one click for about a dozen files), and bingo! -- job done. |
I believe I acquired the nasty adware when I downloaded something else and foolishly clicked through all the preliminary screens agreeing to things without reading what I was agreeing to.
If you choose to download the Malwarebytes product you may hit the snag that I did. When transferring the program to the applications folder, the program wound up in the device folder for the download, and I had to manually transfer it into the Mac's own applications folder.
Disclaimer: I have absolutely no connection with Malwarebytes.
