So glad I found this!
And you will be too if you have an annoying adware virus on your Mac. I was so annoyed with myself for allowing my new MacBook Pro being infected with Adware. It was just randomly going to a MacKeeper site and a Adobe Flash Player download site. I thought I had uninstalled Mackeeper but I hadn’t it kept going to the site. Then I would also get a Aplle looking webpage telling me I had a virus. I did some googling and read a lot about cleaning libraries from Mackeeper files I did all this but still no joy. I then read about Bitdefender and was suspicious at first I don’t like the idea of using software to remove software but I was happy to read it had been endorsed by so many good reviews and it was on Apple’s App Store. So I downloaded it and ran the product. It found quite a few files with adware in the name which Bitdefender deleted. Ever since my Mack has been back to normal so I will be using Bitfinder from now on. Highly recommended! .
I was having alot of trouble with ads popping up on a whole new page, especially an ad for mackeeper. I then had a scare when i had an ad off ‘microsoft’ which really wasnt microsoft, telling me i had been hacked and my drives were corrupted. This was all a lie, they then asked me to pay £200 to fix the problem, from somewhere in india. Well i didn’t, as i thought it sounded dodgy.
However i came away from that situation scared and worried my laptop had viruses and had been hacked. So i got Bitdefender, best decision i have made in a while! it tells you where the problems are, and youve just got to delete them manually. Great!
Definatley recommend this to anyone worried about their computer!!
Simple, reliable, and free
Your choices with a Mac are to rely on the built in security of MacOs, install always-on security software, or else use something like this on demand scanner. The advantage with this system is that it does not slow your system or conflict with other applications and as long as you are diciplined you can update it and perform a scan every 3-4 weeks to reassure yourself that you have not allowed any dodgy software onto your system. Seems to work well, scan quickly and according to official reviews Bitdefender has one of the best scanning engines.
