All of a sudden ads were popping up all over the place. Some of them said they were my ISP and to call a certain number. Then a web page opened up looking like it was an Apple page, wanting me to do a chat. Then more websites opened up on their own. Obviously, something was very wrong. Two things had happened prior to the problem; I updated Flash, and a piece of software downloaded itself.
I immediately went to the App Store and typed in Malware. A number of ad blockers came up and I chose Adware Doctor because it had 5 stars. It detected some things I had to remove manually and when I clicked on each one, it took me to where it was located on the disk. I put each one in the Trash, and upon doing so, my AppDelete software automatically opened, found all the components and deleted them. The Adware Doctor directios were very clear what to do each step of the way, and upon manual deletion of some of the offending software, I restarted my iMac as directed, checked each of the browsers that were affected (Safari, Chrome and Firefox) and found them all the be working as they should. Then I restarted AdWare Doctor, who wanted to know if everything was now working. If it wasn’t they promised more help.
The process was fast, easy and successful. I highly recommend this software based on my experience.
