Are you experiencing a pop-up window that states your computer is low on memory? If you are, it might be an adware Mac-related issue. In this article, we will guide you on how to fix this problem and ensure that your Mac is running smoothly again.
First, let’s launch Apple’s First Aid Utility to see if something was damaged. To do this, open a Finder window, go to Utilities, locate Disk Utility, and click on it. Click on First Aid and then run. Confirm with the continue button. Just wait for the process to finish and see if there are any errors. If everything looks fine, click done, and we are good to go.
The next step is to check all the programs that are set to execute automatically. To do this, we need to open System Preferences. Go to a Finder window, click on the Apple icon, and select System Preferences. Locate Users and Groups, under your username, click on Login Items. Carefully review the items and remove the programs you do not wish to start automatically by selecting the program itself and clicking on the minus down below.
After that, it’s time to clean the browsers. We’ll start with Safari, then show you how to do that on Firefox and Chrome. Launch Safari, go to the Safari menu, and select Preferences. Then choose Extensions. Look for extensions that are unknown to you or look suspicious. If you see any, select and hit uninstall. Once done, go to the General tab and change the home page to the one you like. Finally, head over to the Search tab, pick the search engine you want to use, and you’re done!
To remove any suspicious extensions from Firefox, type this line into the address bar and hit enter. Look for any extensions that shouldn’t be there, and if you find one, click on the three dots next to it and hit remove. Now type this into the address bar, which leads you to your browser settings where you can change the home page and search engine. Choose Home to set your home page, then go to Search to pick your default search engine.
To get your Chrome browser back on track, launch Google Chrome, head over to Chrome extensions, and look for these extensions that you don’t remember installing. Click remove next to it. Now type this line to go to settings page, choose on startup in the sidebar to set your preferred start page. After that, go to the search engine tab and pick the one you want to use. Once you complete all these steps, your browser should work as usual.
It is advisable to double-check if every part of the infection is removed with a reputable anti-malware program. Today, we’ll be using one of the top security products for Mac. You can get a free copy of the program from the official Spy Hunter website. Just follow the download and installation instructions and run the program once you are ready.
