is it decent software anti malware for osx 10.5.8

I think there's malware on the iMac. It is a G5 with osx 10.5.6. I go down to drop windows in Safari, kind of randomly, who says that Safari cannot identify a particular site, and I want to go? I always click on leave. Tumblr or something as it is one of the sites - the other mentions adware, I think.

Does anyone know anti-malware that I can use with this iMac intel os and pre?

Thank you

You may need to consider TenFourFox browser because it is updated.

Safari is not. Four of the 10 Fox is a mozilla derived from generation customized for Mac PPC.

You can choose a different browser as system by default in Safari preferences

This is a way to bypass many of the problems with obsolete Safari. I've seen

is no evidence in any of my two Macs on the G4 (10.5.8) adware or malware running.

It is the TenFourFox for Mac PPC browser homepage; link to note G5 edition:

And if market 10.5.6 download the Combo update to 10.5.8 Leopard.

For Safari in Mac later, there are suggestions in the following article on adware

and this may seem like malware. I had no adware or malware in my

Macs PowerPC G4; There may be instructions in the manual on how to search for songs of

suspicious content in this support page. Avoid products such as AdwareMedic

or malwarebytes anti-malware for Mac because it works in later Macs intel who use OS X.

  • Stop Internet connection malware and Anti-Malware software

    Hello! I have a 2015 MacBook Pro that I use to the work of the College, as you can imagine, I have a lot of important information about this. That being said, I probably should be more careful by browsing the internet, but I have unfortunately seem to have fallen for a 'Java update' Malware thing and have successfully infected my laptop by malicious software.

    After reading a few recommendations online, I downloaded MalwareBytes Anti-Malware free and he ran. It is is immediately detected the dangerous Malware and gave me the ability to clean my computer from harmful programs. After he cleaned my computer, it restarted and opened upward.

    Not only does the Malware not go far, but it got worse: as soon as the screen is turned on, a bunch of windows appeared, with statements such as: "accountsd wants to use the"login"keychain." & " wants to use the"login"keychain". These windows do not disappear when you press Cancel, and I'm afraid to put a password in while my laptop is still affected by the Malware.

    Second, none of my browsers will connect to internet. Google Chrome is no longer loads all pages and now often needs to be force-leave out. Finally, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware won't open and it immediately passes "Application not responding" when opening.

    Can someone please help me with a solution to this problem? It would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have voluntarily or involuntarily exposed your computer to potentially dangerous software, you should consider a backup of your system and a reinstallation of the operating system as no single or multiple scan of your computer can completely provide an accurate assessment of what has been allowed to infiltrate your computer.

  • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool vs Malwarebyte Anti-Malware

    Explain the difference/other services/conflicts between Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and Malwarebyte Anti-Malware.

    I currently use Anti-Malware in conjunctgion with KIS 2012.

    Hi RW,.

    Not precisely.  I say that the Windows Firewall is perfectly adequate, and I don't know any others that provide better protection (but others may have more options of configuration or bells and whistles, some will offer essentially equivalent protection, and some are not as good as Windows Firewall).  Of course, some will say that there are some firewalls that are better than the Windows Firewall, but is no longer a subject of debate and discussion than anything I saw firmly and convincingly demonstrated.  And we know that the Windows Firewall works properly with Windows and other Microsoft products and has great support.  And I never heard of software conflicting with the Windows Firewall, I heard things regarding 3rd party brands - involving mainly browsers, e-mail programs and security as well as configurations of network programs (not just internet, but internal intranet, you can have in your home using cables (, wireless routers/modems, infrared devices, bluetooth, remote deskop (internal or external) devices if used parental controls, interfaces with the security at home and/or surveillance systems wireless devices such as printers or scanners or fax machines and other similar things).

    Remember, without a firewall your computer give to anyone trying to access the system through any network or remote connection via the ports.  There are several ports, most average users never need.  The firewall blocks essentially all ports except those that are specifically excluded.  That's where you come in.  Each has a default list of excluded ports.  You must go through this list and remove all exclusions that you know you don't need (and be sure you KNOW what you have blocked before deleting the exclusion).  Each exclusion represent a hole in your security that an attacker could have access.  The less the better.  When I came through the list, I probably cut just a little less than 50% of registrants - but I cut some I used but rarely I would have rather the firewall blocks and make the extra effort to unblock port temporarily the few times that I need to leave open at all times.  Although for Vista, this article will help you understand the basic concepts of   Attention to the last on the list because it provides links to other articles where you can get better and more information that can help you to choose and decide.

    I'm not going to argue here, since you have already the product and more.  This isn't what I would have chosen, but it is probably one of the best on the market suites and much, much better than some other choice, you could have done.  According to me, that it will probably do the job.  Quite simply, I don't know how good it is the Firewall works because I've never used this before then.  It may in fact be just as good and offer more features, or may not provide the same level of protection or cause any problems or conflicts with other programs or with your network (depending on how you setup).  I do not know.  You bought the suite because you wanted more features than just anti-virus protection.

    I think you can guess what I personally would do, but I can't advise you on what to do here - it's your software, your computer and your decision to make.  Don't forget that you can always disable the firewall in KIS and activate Windows Firewall (or the reverse), once you choose.  This comment in my post was directed at all the recipients and I didn't change it to you specifically - I mean not that it appear as more accurately you invites to spend now that you have already bought another product.  I was trying to say to people in general, he was no need to spend money on a separate firewall when the Windows Firewall has been excellent and would do the job perfectly well.  However, Windows Defender does NOT provide adequate and afflicted an antivirus program protection must be added (that may or may not turn off defender during the installation) to be sure.

    In short, the decision is yours to make.

    I hope this helps clarify things.

    Good luck and best wishes!

  • Have a hijacker horrible malware in my Firefox, anti-malware (all tested) got rid of him in other browsers, but not Firefox. Help? (Like Firefox better)

    Using a combo of Norton, Spybot, Malwarebytes, and Hitman Pro got rid of this malware villain in Internet Explorer and Opera (didn't really impact on opera a lot at first). He also screwed up Chrome but I just uninstalled Chrome, do not in any case. Firefox is my favorite, and now I feel paralyzed without that it works correctly. It is also a very bad malware, puts several ads on the pages that I know do not really have these ads. It opens several tabs will all sorts of sites that I don't know that the pirate gets money to send traffic to.

    Seems you have not yet posted this question of Firefox if we less information than we could have otherwise. It seems reasonable to assume that you have adware or malware installed.

    Common practice is to digitize up to tools date and multiple. Please follow the suggestions sub and post back to let us know what you have tried and what has been reported or found by each tool.

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox can be a result of malware installed on your computer, you may not be aware of.

    Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP, if you do not already have one. Windows 8 already has integrated antivirus.

  • If you use Firefox to connect to facebook, I get a message on the download of anti-malware programs. How can I stop this?

    A few days ago, I tried to connect to Facebook to play games, chat and so on. After filling in the username and password, I get a message telling me it looks like I have malware on my computer and I need to download certain types of anti-malware program to clean my computer. This only happens when using Firefox. How can I get rid of this? I tried to remove and reinstall Firefox. I ran two major anti-malware programs that work on my laptop. If it is a legitimate program from Fb, I would like the option to refuse. I did not have the choice. I can connect to Fb on Google Chrome without problems, and so I have to conclude that this is a problem with Firefox. Any ideas? I tried to contact Fb, but so far there has been no response.

    If you get a pop-up message asking to put plugins or Firefox updated or anti-malware analysis then this message probably is a scam and you should never respond to such reporting to avoid being infected by malware.

    • Don't update Firefox via "> about" or by downloading and installing Firefox from Mozilla and server never using a popup or a link on a web page.
    • Plugins should be updated only through the plugin itself, or by visiting the home page of the plugin.

    Make a check of malware with several malware scanning of programs on the Windows computer.
    Please scan with all programs, because each program detects a different malicious program.
    All of these programs have free versions.

    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before scanning.

    Alternatively, you can write a check for an infection rootkit TDSSKiller.

    They responded:

    It would seem that a virus is attached to our website on your computer, but maybe it's just a coincidence that the virus appears when you access a page on our Web site rather than on another Web site. I am not aware that 1 & 1, a large company with a good reputation, hosting service could be responsible for the vulnerability. And it may not be the theater as our site has no connection with the theatre.

    I suggest that you run only antivirus and anti-malware scan on your computer to see if that is something and make sure your protection is up-to-date.

    I've never used an anti-virus or anti-malware scan on my Mac.  That I should?  Those who uses?

    You don't need to anti-virus; You may need a way to Remove the malware once it shows itself.    Generally recommended here is Malwarebytes which is a free download for Mac users.    You're more likely to attract malware if live you microsoft links.

    The particular link you quoted has two warnings in and of itself.   He popped up and that's with an Indian company.   Does not want racist... it is a reality that most of the spam met us here in the forums is the India... and here in the United Kingdom, most of the calls telephone spam emanates from India or Pakistan.
