103 - Fixing a Mac web browser that has been hijacked by ads
Well, yesterday really was a day that was all about dealing with adware on both Windows and Mac computers, with 3 different people needing iTandCoffee help with this problem.
Yesterday morning, I published on this blog some information about how to deal with such a problem on a Windows computer.
(See What do you do when your Windows computer's web browser is hijacked by Ads.)
If you have a Mac computer, here is how to deal with this same problem, as it has quite a different set of steps to Windows. And it doesn't involve spending any money to download any 'cleanup' software, In fact, these 'cleanup' apps can often introduction their own problems, so should be avoided like the plague!
It is relatively quick and easy to get rid of the adware manually, once you know where to look and what to look for. Save away this article just in case it happens again in future!
