  1. Thanks again for the help !! I cannot recall the specifics but did browse some streaming movie website ~4 (?) days ago and got into some trouble - some popup windows and 1-2 forced downloads. I closed the popup windows, put the downloads in trash and emptied them. That was a ~5 min or less incident and nothing else happened until last night. The same website did not cause much trouble on my PC (e.g. never encountering forced downloads), perhaps because it's much better protected by antivirus/antimalware/firewall and ublock ??
  2. Thanks a lot !!! Just re-ran the updated malwarebytes and it did pick up "unpollute my mac" and removed it. It's now gone from the Applications. Is it fair to say my macbook air is now back to its earlier "normalcy" ? I've read your website thesafemac.com but would like to know if there is anything else I should be doing to help keep my macbook air safe and free from malware invasion. Any additional link is welcome !
  3. Thanks a lot for the quick feedback. Below is the Snapshot Malwarebytes Anti-Malware system report - January 4, 2017 at 4:13:28 PM EST Mac OS X version Version 10.12.2 (Build 16C67) System uptime: 0d 00:46:55 Helper tool version: Signatures version: 154 Safari extensions ----------------------- nargeszali nargeszali Name: AdBlock Path: /Users/nargeszali/Library/Safari/Extensions/AdBlock-2.safariextz Modified: 2015-09-25 20:40:46 +0000 Name: clea.nr Videos Path: /Users/nargeszali/Library/Safari/E
  4. I am a PC guy and recently got my hand onto a MacBook Air. While browsing websites, my MacBook Air got infected. I ran malwarebyte anti-malware for mac and it found some suspicious programs but does not seem to clean up all nasty stuff. A program called "Unpollute My Mac" program remains on the desktop. I am under the impression that Mac runs on Unix so the approach toward handling malware is different from PC. Can I just drag the "Unpollute My Mac" in trash and be done with it? Please advise. Thank you.
  5. Wonderful ! Great many thanks. Will replace the existing one with the latest version available.
  6. Thanks a lot for the quick feedback ! As I only scanned the folder, which contains ~ 6 files, the log is short. I thus post it below, instead of attaching it. Please let me know if it's okay (or not) to post the log directly. Not a techie person, but my understanding of the log is my "local/folder scan" picked up the actual exe file (installer??) on the desktop. So it's neither in \Program Files\, nor \users\xxx\AppData\. Please let me know if more info or more specific scan is needed. Thank you very much. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware www.malwarebytes.org Scan Da
  7. When Malwarebyte anti-Malware scanned a particular folder, it picked up a file named "DjVuReader.exe" as a Threat (Trojan.Agent) in Category Malware. Googling the file name shows that there is a file, a Windows App, with the same name in Microsoft Store https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/djvu-reader/9wzdncrdcsmz. I also uploaded the file to https://www.virustotal.com for scan and result suggests that only Malwarebyte marks it as Trojan Agent (all other 56 programs consider it safe). (a) Is DjVuReader.exe a false positive? (b) Is the file in my folder disguised as DjVuReader.
