When browsing the internet my browser jumps from google to a bing search. It was also popping up mackeeper scan recommendations. I did remove this from the computer at least I believe so. There are pop ups continuously popping up when browsing the internet. It's also moving slower than usual, is there anyone who can help?

Usually uninstalling and reinstalling Browser will remove adware from Macs. Be sure to uninstall your browser's profile, too. 


Removing recently installed add-ons and cleaning the browser's cache may do the trick.
