adware problem - Safari "MallShopper" how to delete?

Post by mrd » Mon Mar 16, 2015 7:44 pm

I am having problems trying to find, delete and stop this adware from popping up in my Safari ver 8.03 browser, Yosemite ver 10.10 has anyone had success at eliminating this adware? I have run Sophos Antivirus, it did not find it. I have searched through the Library and all my folders. Adblock Plus is also not stopping it?

Try http://www.adwaremedic.com/index.php

I think this is a benign way to remove adware.

Sadly, adware is the new spam. Even Oracle is packaging adware along with the latest Java installs. (Because, as we all know, Oracle is so strapped for cash.)

In the future beware of any software ads that promise to speed up your Mac, and also of any sites that promote free versions of any software. In general, never install anything you're not absolutely sure about. If you have any qualms, check here.

If you're interested in some particular software, go directly to the company's site to download it.
