  • What is advanced Mac cleaner and Zipcloud?

    I have a MB Pro mid 2012. Recently, I received a notification that an update was available and he came an offer to install a couple of free program called Advanced Mac cleaner and Zipcloud that would protect and 'clean up' my Mac. Since these came with the update, I assumed they were a legitimate Apple auxiliary and safe to install. But when I ran Adware Medic (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) identified these programs as malware.  Can someone please comment?  I have not yet tried to erase those two requests.

    They are two bins: If you have installed them you must get rid of them as soon as possible and do not use them. At best they they will do very little, but they can cause problems and can also be difficult to remove. They would never be included in an official Apple update - have you used another source? Updates Apple software or systems should come only from software update in the Apple Menu or the Mac App Store in Applications.

  • Cannot get rid of the Mac Cleaner program

    Hello

    I installed mac cleaner just now. I deleted all the files and uninstalled the program a few weeks ago, but somehow every now and then I get a pop up in my upper right corner telling me it's time to clean? I looked through almost all the folders but I can not find all files named cleaner mac or related to that program, how is it possible that he is still running somewhere and send me messages?

    May have installed a fake 'utility' called 'Mac advanced cleaner.' Like any software that aims to 'clean up' or to 'speed up' a Mac automatically, it's a scam, and some or all of the variants of it are ad-injecting malware.

  • Windows on Mac - clean install disadvantages and benefits vs Bootcamp?

    Hi people,

    I recently got my first Mac - one Macbook 2016. I tried on El Capitan, and I still much prefer Windows, I'm looking to install on Mac.

    I've read through bootcamp for double installation, but largely, I would prefer to perform a new installation on Windows (I have a copy of Windows 8.1 Pro with a license key). I can't determine whether or not it is recommended and I would appreciate it if someone could clarify it for me.

    My understanding is that: -.

    (1) it is possible to completely remove OSX and have a clean install of Windows.

    (2) OSX (in my case, El Capitan) can be reinstalled at a later date without extra cost (i.e. free) using the OSX installer.

    (3) install or remove Windows OSX will not affect my warranty the warranty is of Apple hardware.

    One of the main concerns seems to be none using Bootcamp means pilots Apple for Windows will not automatically available. I heard some mention that these drivers may actually now be downloaded separately on the Apple site and installed directly on the machine once Windows is in place. Can someone confirm this please?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope can get definitive information and I can move on Windows soon.

    You are right. You can remove OS X and only keep the windows, but it has some disadvantages, to know before doing this. Apart from this, Internet recovery will let you install OS X at any time even if you have deleted the recovery partition, and you will not have to pay for OS x: OS X is free and is already registered for your Apple ID.

    Drivers, Boot Camp Assistant (an application, you can find in/Applications/Utilities) leads you through the first steps before you install Windows on your Mac, and one of them is to download the drivers for your Mac requires and put them in a USB key. However, you may need to OS X to get latest driver versions.

    Instead of completely removing the OS X, I suggest to allocate more space to Windows, but keep OS X in a small partition. By doing this, you will always be able to update the drivers (where you need OS X to do) and you will have fewer problems getting OS X in the future if you want to delete Windows.

    Finally, don't forget to make a backup of your files before you install Windows on your Mac. You may need it in case something goes wrong with the Windows installation.

  • end of 2013 Mac Pro self begins with red light under DIMM 3

    My end of 2013 "trash" Mac Pro has an intermittent problem on start up - this can take up to 8 auto restarts before it starts to fully operational status. During these reboots red lights are visible through the base, in the area of the 3 & 4 DIMM slots. This happens in about 3-4 times when the Mac Pro is started first thing in the morning. Sometimes - but rarely - it will also restart after a period of normal operation.

    Run diagnostics and, before one of the operations described below, this indicates that all was well but the 2 just many times where I ran diagnosis, he pointed out that no WiFi interface has been installed. Have also run Memtest that since several days of testing, running as a single user with multiple passes, says memory all OK.

    Have tried resetting the SMC both NVRAM and update of the OS. Removed and reinstall the RAM modules. After the reinstallation of modules, first start only registered DIMM 1 & 2 modules. There seems to be no problem with the seating, nothing loose or place and taken liberation were entirely home. Next and all subsequent boots saved all 4 modules.

    A day of immediate bootups without problem but then, first thing this morning, had two cottages restarts during startup. I gave the 2nd boot press / press and hold the 'on' then booted diagnosis - no problem not indicated. On the startup resulting, everything was fine.

    I guess the problem is in, either the GPU or with 3 & 4 DIMM slots. Can someone tell me the meaning of red lights? Diagnosis would be easier if I knew.

    Hello Bob,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I see that you have found a red flashing in the 3 & 4 DIMM slots. Typically, this indicates a bad RAM module or the module is not seated properly. I see you have already done the troubleshooting that I would have recommended. So, unless you have third-party RAM installed in your Mac Pro, I suggest you take a look at the following link to access the service options for your computer.

    Mac software advertising cleaner made by people who make advanced Mac Cleaner, which is an unwanted application that is often distributed with adware. (Hmm, ironic, huh... they sneak with adware and then show you the pop - ups to help you get rid of the adware they rode in with.) The pop-up you see is caused by the Advanced Mac Cleaner, which probably means that you also have another type of adware on your system.
