Please explain what a "locked" program

In general, any application that has been downloaded from the Mac App Store can ve just moved to the trash and deleted.

Applications that have been downloaded from other sources can be similarly moved to the trash, or they come with their own scripts 'uninstaller '.

  • How can I remove the program FBDowloader from the computer?

    Original title: FBDowloader won't go away

    My computer has been infected with browser hijacker program, FBDowloader.  I uninstalled the program, and I ran Norton Power Eraser, MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware, McAfee Security Scan and MSE, none of which can locate or remove it.  Power Eraser says that there is no rootkit virus.  Whenever I start my computer and open IE, I go to Tools - Internet Options, reset the home page of the default home page and change the Google search provider.  I then delete FBDownloader as a search engine option.  However, FBDownloader reappears whenever I restart my computer and I have to go through the process of deleting it again.  FBDownloader also appears in Google Chrome and Mozilla, and I've reset and delete there as well.  How can I get rid of this pest?

    I have not had this problem but a google found this - http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-fbdownloader-search/ that can help you. Also another look of such post in the Startup tab in MSCONFIG and uncheck the box if his list here.

    As I say, I can't confirm this or otherwise, just found via google. Hope this helps (at least until the help of an expert)

  • How can I remove chum research Malware from my mac Air

    I've been infected by malware - research of Chum. How can I delete?

    You may have installed ad-injecting malicious software ("adware").

    Do not use any type of product, "anti-virus" or "anti-malware" on a Mac. It is never necessary for her, and relying on it for protection makes you more vulnerable to attacks, not less.

    Save all data first.

    Some of the most common types of adware can be removed by following the instructions from Apple. But before you follow these instructions, you can try an automatic removal.

    If you are not already running the latest version of Mac OS X ("El Capitan"), update or upgrade in the App Store you could adware to automatically remove. If you are already using the latest version of El Capitan, you can still download the current update of the Apple Support downloads page and run it. Still, some types of malware will be deleted, not all. There is no such thing as the automatic removal of all possible malware, either by OS X third party software. That's why you can't rely on software to protect you.

    If the malware is deleted in your case, you will still need to make changes to the way you use your computer to protect you from new attacks. Ask if you need advice.

    If the malware is not automatically deleted, and you cannot remove yourself by following the instructions from Apple, see below.

    This simple procedure to detect any type of adware that I know. Disabling is a procedure distinct and better still.

    Some legitimate software is funded by advertising and may display advertisements in its own windows or in a web browser while it is running. It's not malware and it may not appear. In addition, some Web sites display advertising intrusive popup that can be confused with adware.

    If none of your web browsers work well enough to carry out these instructions, restart the computer in safe mode. Allows to temporarily disable the malware.

    Step 1

    Please triple - click on the line below on this page to select it, and then copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination:

    ~/Library/LaunchAgents

    In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + v press return. Open a folder named "LaunchAgents", or you will get a notice stating that the file cannot be found. If the file is not found, proceed to the next step.

    If the folder opens, press the combination of keys command-2 to select the display of the list, if it is not already selected. Please don't skip this step.

    There should be a column in the update Finder window. Click this title two times to sort the content by date with the most recent at the top. If necessary, enlarge the window so that all the content show.

    Follow the instructions in this support article under the heading "take a screenshot of a window." An image file with a name starting in 'Screenshot' should be saved to the desktop. Open the capture screen and make sure it is readable. If this isn't the case, capture a small part of the screen indicating that what needs to be shown.

    Start a reply to this message. Drag the image file in the editing window downloading. Alternatively, you can include text in the response.

    Leave the case open for now.

    Step 2

    Do as in step 1 with this line:

    /Library/LaunchAgents

    The record which can open up will have the same name but is not the same as in step 1. In this step, the folder does not exist.

    Step 3

    Repeat with this line:

    /Library/LaunchDaemons

    This time the file will be called "LaunchDaemons."

    Step 4

    Open Safari preferences window and select the tab 'Extensions'. If the extensions are listed, post a screenshot. If there are no extensions, or if you cannot launch Safari, skip this step.

    Step 5

    If you use Firefox or Chrome browser, open the list of extensions and do as in step 4.

  • How can I remove chum research Malware on my Mac

    How can I remove chum research Malware on my Mac

    You may have installed one or more variants of the malware "VSearch' ad-injection. Please back up all data, and then take the steps below to disable it.

    Do not use any type of product, "anti-virus" or "anti-malware" on a Mac. It is never necessary for her, and relying on it for protection makes you more vulnerable to attacks, not less.

    Malware is constantly evolving to work around defenses against it. This procedure works now, I know. It will not work in the future. Anyone finding this comment a couple of days or more after it was published should look for a more recent discussion, or start a new one.

    VSearch malware tries to hide by varying names of the files it installs. To remove it, you must first identify the naming model.

    1 triple - click on the line below on this page to select, then copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination:

    /Library/LaunchDaemons

    In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + V. You won't see what you pasted a newline being included. Press return.

    A folder named "LaunchDaemons" can open. If this is the case, press the combination of keys command-2 to select the display of the list, if it is not already selected.

    There should be a column in the update Finder window. Click this title two times to sort the content by date with the most recent at the top. Please don't skip this step. The files that belong to an instance of VSearch will have the same date of change within about a minute, so they will be grouped together when you sort the folder this way, which makes them easy to identify.

    Search in the folder with the name of all these forms:

    com.something.daemon.plist

    com.something.Helper.plist

    com.something .net - preferences.plist

    Here, something is a string, which may be different in each instance of VSearch random meaningless. So far it has always been an alphanumeric string without punctuation signs, such as "disbalance" or "thunderbearer."

    You may have more than one copy of the malware, with different values of something.

    There may be one or more files with the name of this form:

    com.somethingelseUpd.plist

    where George can be an empty string of sense that something different. Yet once, there may be more than one file of this type, with different values of Gisele.

    Here is a typical example of an infection VSearch:

    com.disbalance .net - preferences.plist

    com.thunderbearerUpd.plist

    You will have files with similar names, but probably not identical to these.

    If you feel confident that you have identified the files above, drag only the files - nothing - to the trash. You may be prompted for administrator login password. Close the Finder window.

    2. open this folder as in step 1:

    /Library/LaunchAgents

    Move to the trash all the files with the name of the form

    com.something.agent.plist

    where something is one of the strings that you found in step 1. There may be not all of these files.

    3. If you have whatever it is moved to the trash in step 1 and step 2, restart the computer and empty the trash.

    Do not remove the folder 'LaunchAgents' or "LaunchDaemons", or anything else inside of one or the other, unless you know you have another type of unwanted software and more VSearch. Records are a normal part of Mac OS X. The terms "agent" and "demon" is a reference to a program that starts automatically. This is not inherently bad, but the mechanism is sometimes exploited by hackers for malicious software.

    4 reset the home page in each of your browsers, if it has been modified. In Safari, first load the desired home page, then select

    ▹ Safari preferences... ▹ General

    and click on

    Set on the current Page

    The malware is now permanently inactivated, as long as you reinstall it never. A few small files will be left behind, but they have no effect, and trying to find all them is more trouble that it's worth.

    5. If you do not find the files or you are not sure about the identification, after what you have found.

    If in doubt, or if you have no backups, change nothing at all.

    6. the penalty may have started when you have downloaded and run an application called 'MPlayerX' or "PDF Pronto." If there is an element with a name in the Applications folder, delete it.

    This Trojan horse is often found on the illegal Web sites that traffic in content such as movies pirated. If you, or anyone else who uses the computer, visit these Web sites and follow the instructions to install the software, you can expect more of the same and worse, to follow. Never install software that you downloaded from a bittorrent, or which has been downloaded by someone else from an unknown source.

    In the aspect of security & confidentiality of system preferences, select the general tab. The marked anywhere radio button should not be selected. If this is the case, click the lock icon to unlock the settings, and then select an other keys. After that, do not ignore a warning that you are about to run or install an application from an unknown Director.

    Then, still in system preferences, open the pane of the App Store or software update and check the box marked

    Install the system data files and security updates (OS X 10.10 or later version)

    or

    Automatically download the updates (OS X 10.9 or earlier version)

    If it is not already done.

    Thank you for your help

    Hi Rhonda,

    There is no uninstall for Mac Reader program. You can directly delete the application from the Applications folder, which is just trash/Applications/Adobe Reader.app. Also, this can cause a break in the features of Safari to read PDF files using Adobe Reader plugin. To resolve this problem, go into/Library/Internet Plug - Ins / and remove AdobePDFViewer.plugin and AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin
