My Mac became locked up when I was on YOUTUBE. The screen suddenly changed to a screen with the following location:
hxxp://mac-protecton.com. It warned using the following: Critical Security Warning! Your System is infected with a malicious adward attack.
Notice the mis-spellings. Protection is spelled: protecton, and adware is spelled adward.
How do I clean this thing out of my mac?.
Download and run AdwareMedic. Let us know if it doesn't work out for you.
I am having the exact same problem and Adware Medic doesn't detect anything. Any suggestions?
