Try restarting in safe mode:


Be sure to read the information in the section titled "How to tell if your Mac is started in safe mode" on that page, and follow those steps to ensure that you're actually in safe mode. If you aren't, try again.

Once you're in safe mode, are you able to log in successfully? If so, open Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac and use it to take a system snapshot.

To do so,choose Take System Snapshot from the Scanner menu, in the menu bar at the top of the screen. Then, in the window that opens, select all the text (Edit → Select All), copy it and paste into a reply to this message.

I've never seen a problem like what you describe from the malware responsible for redirecting to dataloading.net, but there have been some new variants of that malware appearing in the last couple weeks. It's possible that it has done something to your system, but I don't know what that might be.

Are you able to start up in recovery mode? (To do so, hold down command-R at startup. For more info, see: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201314)

If you can, as a first step, repair your hard drive with Disk Utility:


Once you have done that, assuming no repairs are needed or they were successful, quit Disk Utility. Then, while still in recovery mode, reinstall the system. This should install right on top of the current system, replacing any missing or corrupt files. Reinstalling the system will need to download around 5 GB of data from Apple's servers, so if you're on a slow connection, it could take a while.

Note that you really should have backups before attempting this, just in case something goes wrong in the process. If you don't have backups, you may want to consider consulting with Apple instead of trying any of what I've recommended. If there's an Apple Store nearby, make an appointment there, and they can help you figure out how to get your data backed up while the computer is in this state, if that turns out to be possible.
