Malware virus alert and audible... Female voice saying I had malware, virus installed and do not make online purchases
and call Apple immediately... I was researching on google at the time... He gave me a 844 + 7 digits to dial.
I shut down the computer immediately. What should do?
Ignore these scam messages.
Force Quit Safari, then restart Safari while holding the SHIFT key.

As a regular sound listener, I regularly used blow-up controls music on pause or go back as you drive an audiobook to keep my GPS map display on the screen. Since the update to iOS 10, shot-up music control buttons disappeared. Unless there is a more simple solution, I spend Waze audible, which is much more distracting and may be dangerous. Has anyone here found a solution?
Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.
I understand your message that you want to use the audio controls in the control panel to control your audio books using a GPS navigation app. I understand your desire to not have music controls in the Panel. Controls the music is accessible from the control panel by opening Control Panel and slide the Panel to the left.
Swipe Control Center left to play quickly, pause and control the volume of your favorite song, podcast and more.
Hi if anyone can help.
A friend tried to watch movies online, I'm not sure of the site they visited, but were asked to install MacKeeper and I believe that they did, as I noticed it was to download and installed the following day and I asked them why they did this and they said it was the only way to watch movies!
Anyway to cut a long story short my friend then called me to say they received a "pop" window to say that my computer has a virus and call a number of 1800... I told them to do nothing certainly not call the number and I would like to sort.
So basically since then that then I can not connect to my main account at the start, the section where you type your password won't let me type into it and there is a symbol of the brand of 'question' next to it. If I hold my mouse over the question mark I get a dialog box stating "Please enter your password to iCloud as... as well as the date. I can only login as a guest and I cannot connect in 'safe' mode by holding down the SHIFT key.
I deleted the MacKeeper Application (and also another OS player application that is newly installed the same day!) and empty the memory cache of my browsers and also now upgraded to 10.11.6
I also run disk utilities, but still I'm getting this problem trying to connect to my main user account!
I think that it is some kind of malware, does anyone have ideas how to solve at least the connection problem?
If I could stamp out to see if there is any malware stuff going on behind the scenes it would be too great!
All suggestions welcome.
How did you uninstall the MacKeeper application? Please be as specific as possible, unless you have followed the steps, I suspect that your system has installed to uninstall. If this is the case then you will need to re-install and uninstall immediately by following the instructions of developers. Otherwise, the best thing to do is to do a wipe and installing OS X and then manually install your applications and restore your data from your Time Machine backup.
I'm sure you probably learned to not let this 'friend' enter the 100' of your computer.
Ive seen discussions on a future message that "Your Mac has blocked please call this number + 44 8000 988 382" and then the State of my login information and Facebook credit card were stolen. An address bar is where I guess that ready to go into the details if you call the number of someone trying to access the remote Mac. I force quit safari and has no dial, I'll do something else with the Mac? Apple will consider it if I had to give them the address that comes is not official apple?

I had checked a picture of star wars on Google.
Thanks for any help.
The whole thing looks like similar scams where they want you
your tax and private volunteer information and perhaps even
allow them to hijack your computer too.
A search revealed a few ideas on what to do about the issue,
and also how to or where to report them. To solve any problem of
the actual visit to a wrong page, is probably more important
that reports the website of Apple, for your own use of Mac. See:https:// site.google.com/site/ clubfhs/support/advice.../browser-popup-hijack-safaapple...
I think that I was not careful enough and that you have installed a malware on my mac. To many sites that I visit, the ads appear, and when I click somewhere on the page (not even on ads) a couple new tabs open and talk a bit about Flash or suggest antivirus,... ads are usually 'TurboMac' and 'DealTop '. I do not see the extensions in my browser, but I have this problem with all my browsers.
Please help me get rid of this problem and I promise to be more careful in installing apps!
(I use OS X El Capitan and I have enabled FileVault)
Thanks in advance.
I wrote a small diagnostic program to help show what adware is installed. Download EtreCheck from http://www.etrecheck.com, run it and paste the results here. EtreCheck is perfectly safe to run, don't request your password to install and is signed with my developer Apple ID.
If adware is installed, EtreCheck will help remove you, although you may need to provide a password. If you are not comfortable with that, just after the report of EtreCheck here and other AIDS can tell you exactly which files should be deleted and the way to do it.
WARNING: Although EtreCheck is free, there are other links on my site that could give me some form of compensation, financial or otherwise.
Over the weekend, my iMac received the fake local saying Adobe Flash needs an update. I checked that I was indeed the last version for OS X. Now I get the pop up every hour or so and I want to get rid of.
I have never clicked on the download button. I tried Malwarebytes, but it found no malicious software, which could be because of me is not clicking on download.
I'm sorry if this is off topic for OS X, but perhaps someone can direct me where to go for help.
Using Chrome and El Capitan
Try MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (formally AdwareMedic)
There is a free option for Macs
How do you prevent this message appear on my desk, on my macbook pro?
-Quit Safari and reopen it with the SHIFT key.
-You can check if the adware is on your computere:

This morning I opened the email m and there was one that looked like it came from apple... I clicked it and a gray screen appeared with a voice that tells me to call the number 888 a1. I can't get rid of the email. Can I get rid of it by stopping? In the message my access to my hard drive appears and asks me to enter the password etc... I didn't get this because I want to make sure that it does not allow malware to enter my hard drive like that. Please help me with what I can do. I have "silenced" the voice and he has declined so that I can continue on...
When I access my blog site: http://blog.dreamtobe.cn in Safari, it jumps on the site of "Attention site Web Malware" automatically. I even confuse on it, because there's just tech messages in my blog Web site, it is very clear and safe with the https://hexo.io/ framework, and even, I already opened the source code of my website in the Github: https://github.com/Jacksgong/Blog .
Also, when I check "malware"22.214.171.124"status" on the page of diagnosis of safe browsing Google, it shows his "not dangerous".
Please give me some ways to solve this problem, it is very important for me, thank you very much.

New Mac owner. Coming from bottom of Windows, I have to ask the following question:
Even if my Mac Windows malware, nothing is really happening? He can't steal passwords, spy on me etc.?
The good news is that even if Mac are able to host Windows viruses and Trojans targeting, these machines cannot be harmed by the malware in almost all cases.
Is this article the right there is a possibility or...?
-L' user who suffered years of Windows security flaws
The article is accurate. Work of the malware order must run on the computer. The malware is Widnows only she can't run OSX. However, it can infect Windows Boot Camp and facilities of machine virtual windows.
My macbook pro has been infected by malware. I can detect it, but can not delete and continues to move whenever I open my mac. Is there a solution?
You can install and run Malwarebytes scan https://www.malwarebytes.com/antimalware/mac/
After the scan removes all found items, it must remove all malware.
How to remove malware from my system? :
Earlier today, I was typing a Word with Safari open in the background document. Suddenly, I noticed that the Safari window had become black. When I click on the Safari window to see what was going on, I noticed that the window that was opened had been replaced by a message from the thesofttic [dot] com asking me to "install the new Flash Player".
It looked suspicious, so instead of following the instructions, I have google thesofttic [dot] com. I found that he is, apparently, a distributor of malware. Worse still, once he "digs its way into your computer," it can cause everything * to detach.
Sources for the claim above:
So, I have several questions about this.
First of all, have malware on my MacBook, even if I didn't click on the links to thesofttic [dot] com? How can I check for malware? If my MacBook has malware, how can I remove it?
Secondly, I have had my iPad connected to my MacBook when thesofttic [dot] com window appeared. My iPad is now infected by malware as well? How will I know? If my iPad malware, how can I remove it?
The two links above suggest you use MacBooster or MacKeeper, but these sounds like malware themselves!
What should I do?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Do not install third-party applications that claim win in performance or clean your computer.
It is safe to download and use malwarebytes for Mac https://www.malwarebytes.com/antimalware/mac/
I heard that Mac can have Windows malware, and although it is harmless for Mac (Windows malware can´ ' t really steal passwords?) it can move for users of Windows through mail or such?
I Don t want to infect windows using buddies then the advice? I have Malwarebytes and Avast for Mac, but they assume Don t look for malware from Windows?
I can't speak from personal experience about Malwarebytes and Avast for Mac, but I can say that Sophos Anti-virus for Mac detect and report the Mac and Windows malware.
I am surprised that a horde of people not already jumped in and said Macs do not need anti-virus software anti-virus itself is a real nuisance. However they seem to still do not understand is that companies often have to ensure that they do not spend on malware to these unfortunate people using Windows.
I was search the web yesterday and an alert out said I had a spy virus of malware on my phone. Now, safari will not change and is enclosed in it. I restarted my phone several times even a hard reboot with no luck in my phone back to normal. This problem can be corrected or is the unwanted phone now?
unless your phone is jailbroken, you don't have a virus or malware.
See the information about clearing your browser settings here
Utility scan disk for malware? And it can search the malicious software on an external hard drive?
