I have an Apple OS X YOSEMITE 10.10.3.  In the last few days, an advertising beast has taken hold of my computer.  I use AdBlock Plus and AdBlock Pro and Last Pass.  This advertising beast inserts ads in any site I go to.  It also prevents my logging into Last Pass.  It does not seem to affect Mozilla Firefox.  Can you help?

Hello @Enidtoo,

 

 

  1. Please download AdwareMedic
  2. Open the DMG and install it. 
  3. Start AdwareMedic and choose Scan for Adware. Possible Adware will remove to the trash.
  4. Open AdwareMedic again and choose from the menu Scanner the Option Take System Snapshot. Click on the button Copy to Clipboard if the scan done.
  5. Please post the Log here in the thread.
  6. Also post possible finds. Choose from the menu Scanner the Option Open Log File, copy the contents and insert the results here.

Hey Dante12, 

 

What are your opinions on Tron? Not my creation, but someone posted it to reddit.com/r/sysadmin. I've used it before to remove adware similar to what OP is describing where other programs like MBAM failed.

 

Edit: I know Tron is for Windows, but just curious.

I've read a little about the batch it's only for users with good knowledge about the cleaning tools that used on the system. This batch made for windows users that need the cmd environment. You cannot execute it on mac or linux too big differences. Also the set commands pointed to windows location. I recommended using tools made for mac or linux.
