  1. Hi there. I was recently made aware of MBAM by a very knowledgeable colleague and so downloaded and installed it. I have a 'MacBook 13-inch Mid 2007' 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo running OSX 10.7.5, so I opted for MBAM 1.0.28. Whenever I select to scan, MBAM works for a few seconds but then enters a 'non-responding' state, each time almost immediately after progressing to Adware.VSearch'. I've left it in this state for over two hours to no avail. Having looked at the forums here, I saw a suggestion that a scan under 'Safe boot' conditions may be the way forward, but all that then happened was that MBAM wouldn't work, showing an error that it requires an internet connection. WiFi appears not to be available following a Safe Boot so no joy there. I also disabled Firmware Password requirement in case that was the culprit, again with no benefit. It would please me to be know that the machine is free of malware and would be grateful for any suggestion as to how I may achieve that end. With kind regards JB Oh, and the answer to the question, 'Why not ask your knowledgeable colleague, then?' is simple: I was grateful for his recommendation, but I didn't feel it was then fair to then ask him for support ;-)
  2. My mac has been running very slow. Half the pages I visit finish loading and do not display the page at all. I have to refresh the page several times and still nothing. Then there is this turbomac ad - almost 3 or 4 on every page I visit There is an offerz4u ad which appears like a horizontal comic strip at the bottom of the page with a option to close by crossing it. it sometimes appears on the middle of the page like a vertical comic strip too. Even outlook and gmail weren't opening. The offline outlook account that says "Mail" on mac --- all the accounts were deleted and it was not allowing me to create new ones or re-sign in into the old ones. I researched the problem and was advised to remove certain .plist files from launch Daemons and gmail and few pages started working. But 99% of the issues weren't solved so I installed MBAM, ran a scan and it detected upwards of 250 problems. Now some of them seem like simple folders on a mac which have been flagged for reasons unclear to me. Eg: Library/AppPolicy I needed to as what items are malware and adware before deleting since the last time I clicked delete all in MBAM on windows, it deleted several registry keys and files that were not infected and screwed up my system when deleted. I'm attached screenshots of the list of detected things on MBAM scan since I found no other way to show you the logs. I was afraid if I hit cancel then the whole list would disappear. Most of the name you see were under the heading "Vsearch" P.S. Every time I visit a website, it takes a long time to load so I noted down all the redirects and names of addresses that appear on tthe bottom right of the page and I'm attaching that as the first file here. Please help. WEbsite redirects.txt
  3. Hey guys, I want remove the adware program offers4u from my mac. Since it did not work the manually way I installed malwarebytes. Whenever I try to run it it stops at the point "Adware.Vsearch".
