Top Results.app

Recommended Posts

Good morning

I've re-run the scan and it didn't find it

I think it came in with a new version of microsoft Office for the Mac, this had a new app Chromium which kept pointing to Yahoo, when I trashed the app it left behind Top Results.app on the desk top which I can't get rid of - this is an ad malware?

We have found a copy of that app and confirmed that it is adware. If you run another scan at this point, it should update the database and detect that app. Be sure to quarantine it, then go to the Quarantine tab in Malwarebytes and clear the quarantine, then restart your Mac.
