How do I remove the Conduit third-party malware

I'm beyond frustrated, my MacBook Pro has been hi-jacked by the Conduit third-party malware scam. All my browsers are effected with this malware causing them to be forced to use the conduit/bing search. I have spent hours trying to figure out how to remove it, but none of the solutions work. I have done the extensions/add-on removal etc., for all the browsers without any luck. If someone here has a solution or maleware removal software suggestion, I would be grateful as this is driving me nuts.

Easy way to remove it is as follows:
1. Go to Safari preferences>extensions then get extensions, and uninstall the conduit one
2. Open finder window, then click on your mac hd and search for conduit, this brought up a couple of files on my HD, which i then moved into the recycle bin. There'll be a plugin file which is no doubt the program.
I then reset safari and voila no more irritating popup ads. You will then need to empty recycle bin to dump the files, but they won't work once they are in the recycle bin.

    Drag it to the Trash.
    Uninstalling Software: The Basics
    Most OS X applications are completely self-contained "packages" that can be uninstalled by simply dragging the application to the Trash.  Applications may create preference files that are stored in the /Home/Library/Preferences/ folder.  Although they do nothing once you delete the associated application, they do take up some disk space.  If you want you can look for them in the above location and delete them, too.
    Some applications may install an uninstaller program that can be used to remove the application.  In some cases the uninstaller may be part of the application's installer, and is invoked by clicking on a Customize button that will appear during the install process.
    Some applications may install components in the /Home/Library/Applications Support/ folder.  You can also check there to see if the application has created a folder.  You can also delete the folder that's in the Applications Support folder.  Again, they don't do anything but take up disk space once the application is trashed.
    Some applications may install a startupitem or a Log In item.  Startupitems are usually installed in the /Library/StartupItems/ folder and less often in the /Home/Library/StartupItems/ folder.  Log In Items are set in the Accounts preferences.  Open System Preferences, click on the Accounts icon, then click on the LogIn Items tab.  Locate the item in the list for the application you want to remove and click on the "-" button to delete it from the list.
    Some software use startup daemons or agents that are a new feature of the OS.  Look for them in /Library/LaunchAgents/ and /Library/LaunchDaemons/ or in /Home/Library/LaunchAgents/.
    If an application installs any other files the best way to track them down is to do a Finder search using the application name or the developer name as the search term.  Unfortunately Spotlight will not look in certain folders by default.  You can modify Spotlight's behavior or use a third-party search utility, EasyFind, instead.
    Some applications install a receipt in the /Library/Receipts/ folder.  Usually with the same name as the program or the developer.  The item generally has a ".pkg" extension.  Be sure you also delete this item as some programs use it to determine if it's already installed.
    There are many utilities that can uninstall applications.  Here is a selection:
        1. AppZapper
        2. AppDelete
        3. Automaton
        4. Hazel
        5. AppCleaner
        6. CleanApp
        7. iTrash
        8. Amnesia
        9. Uninstaller
      10. Spring Cleaning

  • Can you get your cracked iPod Touch screen repaired if you colored the top of it with highlighters? If you can't, how do I remove the highlighter?

    I cracked my iPod Touch screen at the top where the front camera is and colored the cracks in with highlighter. I want to know if I can still get it repaired even if its colored in? If I can't, how do I remove the highlighter?

    If your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad is Broken
    Apple does not fix iDevices. Instead, they exchange yours for a refurbished or new replacement depending upon the age of your device and refurbished inventories. On rare occasions when there are no longer refurbished units for your older model, they may replace it with the next newer model.
    ATTN: Beginning July 2013 Apple Stores are now equipped to do screen repairs/replacements in-house on iPhone 5s. In some cases while you wait. According to Apple this is the beginning of equipping Apple Stores with the resources needed to do most repairs for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches that would not require major replacements. Later in the year the services may be extended as Apple Stores become equipped and staffed with the proper repair expertise. So, if you need a screen repaired or a broken screen replaced or have your stuck Home button fixed, call your local Apple Store to see if they are now doing these in-house.
    You may take your device to an Apple retailer for help or you may call Customer Service and arrange to send your device to Apple:
    Apple Store Customer Service at 1-800-676-2775 or visit online Help for more information.
    To contact product and tech support: Contacting Apple for support and service - this includes international calling numbers.
    iPod Service Support and Costs
    iPhone Service Support and Costs
    iPad Service Support and Costs
    There are third-party firms that do repairs on iDevices, and there are places where you can order parts to DIY if you feel up to the task. Start with Google to search for these.

    Hi,
    We have seen that. Thanks.
    Now, how could we add multiple tiems to ATG's shopping cart before redirecting the user to ATG's home?
    The scenario we see is:
    User navigates on a Marketing website, spots items he/she is interested in and add them to the LOCAL shopping cart (without leaving the current website), after adding many items he/she decides to buy these items buy clicking FINISH, at this moment we add the N items to ATG shopping cart (how??) and redirect the user to ATG's home.
    Is that possible?
    Thanks

  • How do I remove the pop up on log in We do not support community tool bar on this version of safari?

    How do I remove the pop up message on Safari log in, we do not support this version of community tool bar ?

    Your problem is with the Community Toolbar.
    It's a terrible app/plugin that messes up Macs like the plague.
    Did you ever install a customized toolbar? Like a Facebook one? Or for watching sports?
    Here's how to search and destroy:
    Close Safari.
    Check here for CT Loader
    Locate and delete:
    HD/Library/Application Support/Conduit
    HD/Library/InputManagers/CTLoader
    HD/Library/Receipts/ctloader.pkg
    HD/Library/Receipts/<Toolbar name>.pkg
    HD/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins/CT2285220.bundle
    HD/Users/<User name>/Library/Application Support/Conduit
    It may not be in every single location, but get it out where ever you find it.
    Restart Safari. Any Better?

  • How can I remove the 'apps' toolbar (the one below the bookmarks toolbar)?

    '''In FF4, how can I remove the 'apps' toolbar?'''
    (My computer screen is now smaller than before due to this new black strip. A 'right click' doesn't help. the "+" on the left only takes me to 'conduit'. I am not interested in this feature at all.)
    Thanks, Reg.

    I had the same problem and was able to remove the empty apps bar by doing the following:
    1. Click on Tools in Mozilla; 2. Click on Add-Ons; 3. Click on Extensions; 4. Look for an add-on called Conduit app; 5. Click to the right of Conduit app to Remove Conduit App; and 6. Restart Firefox: hooray - it's gone!

    Hello Mudassar,
    In SQL Server / T-SQL we don't have a native JSON support, so you would have to implement a solution on your own = parsing the string and remove the "Key" + it's value.
