How can I remove helpfeederbar.com from my iMac?  My internet is completed controlled by this virus/malware.  Even when I go a search engine like Google and enter the name for my search, the wheel starts spinning and nothing ever happens.  I just can't get to any sites that I'm searching and it has rendered the computer basically useless.

Have you tried with Bitdefender or Sophos ?

I have not but I will. Another thing is that the problem is so evasive that it prevents my computer from accessing the desired sites by causing the wheel to spin and spin before stopping without bringing up the desired site.

Which browser are you using? Is it Safari?

If so, then try turning off all Extensions under that preferences for Safari to see if it goes away. If it does go away, then that means there is an extension installed that is doing it. You can look at the list of installed extensions in the preferences for Safari and remove anything that you do not recognize.
