    There is no need to download anything to solve this problem.
    You may have installed one or more of the common types of ad-injection malware. Follow the instructions on this Apple Support page to remove it. It's been reported that some variants of the "VSearch" malware block access to the page. If that happens, start in safe mode by holding down the shift key at the startup chime, then try again.
    Back up all data before making any changes.
    One of the steps in the article is to remove malicious Safari extensions. Do the equivalent in the Chrome and Firefox browsers, if you use either of those. If Safari crashes on launch, skip that step and come back to it after you've done everything else.
    If you don't find any of the files or extensions listed, or if removing them doesn't stop the ad injection, ask for further instructions.
    Make sure you don't repeat the mistake that led you to install the malware. It may have come from an Internet cesspit such as "Softonic" or "CNET Download." Never visit either of those sites again. You might also have downloaded it from an ad in a page on some other site. The ad would probably have included a large green button labeled "Download" or "Download Now" in white letters. The button is designed to confuse people who intend to download something else on the same page. If you ever download a file that isn't obviously what you expected, delete it immediately.
    Malware is also found on websites that traffic in pirated content such as video. If you, or anyone else who uses the computer, visit such sites and follow prompts to install software, you can expect more of the same, and worse, to follow. Never install any software that you downloaded from a bittorrent, or that was downloaded by someone else from an unknown source.
    In the Security & Privacy pane of System Preferences, select the General tab. The radio button marked Anywhere  should not be selected. If it is, click the lock icon to unlock the settings, then select one of the other buttons. After that, don't ignore a warning that you are about to run or install an application from an unknown developer.
    Still in System Preferences, open the App Store or Software Update pane and check the box marked
              Install system data files and security updates (OS X 10.10 or later)
    or
              Download updates automatically (OS X 10.9 or earlier)
    if it's not already checked.

  • How can I get rid of duplicate birthdays in icloud Calendar, especially when there are no Contacts in the iCloud? Case ID: 365381395

    How can I get rid of duplicate birthdays in icloud Calendar, especially when there are no Contacts in the iCloud? Case ID: 365381395

    Found the answer myself while helping to set up iPhone.  It is simple when you know how.  Before signing out of iCloud to sign in again and restore the link to Photo Stream I had opted to copy iCloud contacts to the Mac.  When I signed in again this created two iCloud views which can be seen in Contacts Preferences.  I just disabled one of them.  Not brave enough to attempt removal but I gues this would work too.

  • Error 404 - how do I get rid of this message on my Google page when I open Safari?

    How do I get rid of error 404 on my Google page when I open Safari?

    Safari - Reset Safari - choose all options and reset Safari.
    If that does not work then check to see what Safari extensions you have installed, one or more may be creating a problem.
    Another possible fix is restarting in Safe Mode which clears some caches, one or more may have become corrupt. To restart in Safe Mode simply hold down the Option key when you hear the startup tone until a progress bar appears. Then test Safari and then restart normally.

  • My old itunes id was an email that no longer can be used, therefore, I can not change the password for that account.  Everything that I purchased under that id name will not play.  How can I fix this?

    My old itunes id was an email that no longer can be used, therefore, I can not change the password for that account.  Everything that I purchased under that id name will not play.  How can I fix this?

    I no longer have an email address that was also my Apple ID. Can I still use the email address as my Apple ID?
    Apple recommends you change your Apple ID to your current, working email address. This will not create another Apple ID, it will only change it to your working email address. See Changing the name you use for your Apple ID if you'd like more information.
    Note: @mac.com and @me.com Apple IDs can not be renamed.  If you no longer use the .mac or .me email address be sure to add your valid email address as an additional email address.

  • Hi, just wondering how do i get rid of viruses on my mac pro?! as soon as i go on the internet other windows pops up and the whole screen starts to play up, like it starts to click things that i didn't even click?! help please

    hi i was just wondering how do i get rid of viruses?! Everytime i go on safari my computer goes all weird and starts to pop up with other internet sites without me even typing it in. My arrow also starts to click on all things that i didn't even click on and opens up apps that i didn't want?!

    There are several possible causes for this issue. Take each of the following steps that you haven't already tried until it's resolved. Some may not be applicable.
    1. Follow the instructions in this support article, and also this one, if applicable.
    2. Open the Bluetooth preference pane in System Preferences and check for unknown or forgotten input devices. Disconnect any USB input devices that you aren't using.
    3. Boot in safe mode and test, preferably without launching any third-party applications. If you don't have the problem in safe mode, but it comes back when you reboot as usual, stop here and post your results. If you can't boot in safe mode, do the same. If you booted in safe mode and there was no change, go on to the next step.
    4. Reset the System Management Controller.
    5. If you're using a Bluetooth trackpad, investigate potential sources of interference, including USB 3 devices.
    6. A swollen battery in a MacBook Pro or Air can impinge on the trackpad from below and cause erratic behavior. If you have trouble clicking the trackpad, this is likely the reason. The battery must be replaced without delay.
    7. Press down all four corners of the trackpad at once and release. If there's any effect, it's likely to be temporary, and the unit needs to be serviced or replaced.
    8. There's a report that a (possibly defective) Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter can cause the built-in trackpad of a MacBook to  behave erratically. If you're using such an adapter, disconnect it and test.
    9. There's also a report of erratic cursor movements caused by an external display that was connected but not turned on.
    10. If none of the above applies, or if you have another reason to think that your computer is being remotely controlled, remove it from the network by turning off Wi-Fi (or your Wi-Fi access point), disconnecting from a Bluetooth network link, and unplugging the Ethernet cable or USB modem, whichever is applicable. If the cursor movements stop at once, you should suspect an intrusion.
    11. Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store to have the machine and/or external trackpad tested.

  • How does one get rid of Chinese in Safari thank you very much anyone got an idea

    Apple have done a great big mistake visibly. How can they have released a new iOS which does not take into each machines configuration.
    Maybe it's only about money. Now the boys to the top and the job's family have made a great deal of money out of apple, no one really cares.
    In the meantime, if someone does have a way of solving my problem of how to get rid of Chinese in Safari I would be very grateful.
    Also the photo upload and other features within the photo system had been changed. It is now difficult to delete photos in bulk and the machine. Is there a solution to that issue?
    What I don't understand is this indicates that someone is playing around with making iOS worse not better giving full steam ahead to someone like Samsung and others to pounce.

    The Favorites view is create based on a list of bookmarks in a bookmarks folder called "Favorites".  You may remove the Chinese web sites from the Favorites view by removing them from the Favorites folders in Bookmarks.
    1. Launch Safari.
    2. Tap the "Bookmarks" icon to the right of the address view.
    3. Tap the "Bookmarks" tab (the one on the left).
    4. Tap the "Favorite" folder.  You should see the list of Chinese web sites.
    5. Tap the "Edit" button.
    6. Delete the unwanted bookmarks.
    7. Tap the "Done" button.
    Note that if you want to add your own websites to the Favorites view, just add a bookmark to the Favorites folder while you're viewing the website.
    Also note that changing the language setting won't change the sites in Favorites.  The list of sites is created on first upgrade to iOS 7.

  • How do i get rid of ads on Firfox home page ( most current version is installed and all extendsions disabled)?

    ads on FireFox home page started a month or two ago...
    some are very offensive (a gun pointing at me) and all are highly distracting/flashing things and such....
    I emptied /cleared my Cache today..kept in only a few I knew..did the clean out manually selecting..
    My version is current 18.0.1 as of a week or two ago..
    and there were only 2 Extensions listed and both are disabled..
    so what else can be done to get rid of these ads?

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
    You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
    * [http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/default.aspx Microsoft Safety Scanner]
    * [http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware]
    * [http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208283363 TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility]
    [http://windows.microsoft.com/MSE Microsoft Security Essentials] is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
    Further information can be found in the [[Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware]] article.
    '''Reset Firefox'''
    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
    Note: ''This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.''
    To Reset Firefox do the following:
    #Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
    #Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
    #Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
    #Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
