    Have you run malwarebytes over it? What is that saying?

    malwarebytes saids it 0 results for malware, whereas kaspersky detects trojans which can't be deleted via it options.

    We use AVG (the paid one) at work which seems to be good and nowhere near as resource-hungry as it's free counterpart. Eset used to be the top of the pops but is now only available as a paid seervice I think. Using Avira free on the dauhter's school laptop and it runs well, although the occasional pop-up asking you to spend money is an annoyance at worst.

    In the past I used Avast (free), seemed an excellent free solution.

    hmm possibly.. do you often go to warez sites or torrent sites etc and download heaps?

    or do you often go to hardcore extreme p0rn or h3ntai sites?

    You need to be honest and tell us the truth cos it'll def come back even if u delete virus.

    Yes they have admitted selling data, a small portion of their revenue. They have apparently cleaned up their act and the data they on-sell is now not indivdualised. Google is farming your data. Facebook is farming your data. Every browser extension is farming your data.

    for Mac i would suggest using ClamXAV - you get a free 30 day trial

    It has been around for mac for about 15 years at least

    also Malwarebytes for Mac is good

    whatever you do stay away from mackeeper or maccleaner etc

    also according to the pic you posted your browser (safari) is being infected, not your files

    I would suggest resetting safari and deleting your plist files related to safari and then restart and resetup safari

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7961384

    Malwarebytes should fix most of it and clamxav will kill most dodgy extensions but some may remain hence why i suggest deleting the plist file for safari

    See how you go - kaspersky is great on pc, but not so great on mac.

    make sure you empty your recycle bin after deleting and reboot
