OS X Mavericks :: How To Get Rid Of Excessive Popups / Ads And Unwanted Redirects

Sep 11, 2014

About month or two ago, I started getting excessive ads on my computer. Scams, Microsoft stuff, Adobe Flash upgrades hat were obviously fake. The ads generally appeared on the pay, but evolved to gene ate separate tabs and windows. It gets really annoying when i can't click twice without getting a scam, or being redirected. I don't know if there are similar topics. i'm not going to look cause in the 5 minutes it took for me to write this, I've been redirected TWICE.

OS X Mavericks :: Virus / Can't Get Rid Of Popups

Sep 1, 2014

whenever I search something in Google, the results will come up, and then about 2 seconds later, other random text and links will appear. The most annoying part though is that whenever I click on ANYTHING, whether it be a link or a field to fill in, it takes me to various "mac cleaner" websites. I haven't downloaded any of those sites, yet it's started happening in the last day and appears to be getting worse. There are also random ads appearing on every website I go to, that never appeared before. For example, at the google home page, there are now random ads all over the bottom of it.  

I have tried to manage my cookies and pop ups, I've deleted chrome and reinstalled it again, I have restarted my computer, nothing seems to be working! I've tried all three of my web browsers - safari, chrome and firefox, and they all do the same thing.

Lately, every time I open Safari the computer heats up and the fan blows continuously. This doesn't happen for Chrome, so I've had to use Chrome exclusively lately. 

In Activity Monitor, Safari Networking has an energy impact of 100 and Average Energy Impact of 77, which Safari has an Average Energy Impact of 162. Chrome is at 11.

OS X Mavericks :: Excessive Unauthorized Remote Access Attempts On IMac

Sep 5, 2014

This morning and throughout the day this is how my console looked:

 My machine became unresponsive at times up to the point that I had to hard-restart it twice. Before today I hadn't noticed any weird activity like this, I looked up some of the ip addresses that appeared there and all of them were marked as malicious ip's. 

Is there anything I can do to prevent this other than shutting down the vnc access? Is logmein a better/safer option? I need to connect to my machine remotely almost on a daily basis. 

Why this started happening to my machine all of the sudden? is not like I keep highly classified info on that computer, is a common occurrence and I shouldn't worry? All the attempts are failed, but it got to a point where I'm getting more than one per second, so I guess that's what caused my machine to crash.

IMac :: Fan Runs Loudly With Excessive Rpm's?

Jan 17, 2010

I have been battling with fan speed on my iMac recently.

I installed iStat which shows normal temps, but the fan revs up to 4000rpm - for seemingly no reason at all. Sometimes its quiet for long periods. It sometimes helps for a while if I put the machine into Sleep mode, but then I hear the fan start to rev up again when I resume activity.

I have spent hours with tech support, who then upgraded me to a higher level of tech support. But still the problem continues.

MacBook Air :: Excessive Water Damage?

May 7, 2012

My MacBook Air was not starting up so I sent it in for a repair. Just got a call that the logic board is corroded and there is excessive water damage. However, I have never split anything on my laptop nor has anyone else. I carry it around with me all the time. I thought at first it might be damage due to a shock as a dropped it a few months ago and it has a slight dent on a corner.

Software :: Mac Mail - Excessive Incoming Messages

Sep 8, 2009

I use Mac Mail at home and at work. At home everything works fine. At work, in general everything is working, but every time I start up Mail, it says there are over 1500 Incoming Messages and proceeds to "download" them. Of course there aren't these messages. My two email accounts are .Mac IMAP account and a business IMAP account. These 1500 messages don't seem to be put anywhere, and I can't seem to figure out which account these messages are coming from. The problem is downloading all of this makes my computer slow down a bunch (old mac) and it takes a long time. The problem does not affect my home Mac or my iPhone.

IMac :: Google Desktop Using Excessive CPU Time

Jan 14, 2009

I bought my current imac in late 07, I have the 2.0 20" with 1GB ram (don't know why I have upgraded) anyway, it seemed my mac was getting slower over time and I didn't really think anything of it. Its my first mac and I figured it was just like a PC in that hardware wares out. But the problem with the slowness wasn't the mac, it was GOOGLE! I downloaded google desktop about 2 months after i got the mac and its been on ever since. I rarely ever used it, only when spotlight failed to do a good enough job. So I finally opened up activity monitor to look at my ram usage (I am thinking about upping) with all these apps open (FCP, PS, etc) and I notice my cpu is being 50% used.

So I change to view all apps and it appears googledesktopdae and MDS (spotlight) were using 20-30% of my cpu! I finally got rid of it after reading a bunch of forums. Apparently even if you uninstall GD, its process google desktop still stays on your mac and runs. Anyway I don't know how much it has been using while I didn't even realize but in the last 45 minutes since I fully got it removed my computer has been a "screamer!" Does anyone else have this installed? is it using much of your CPU? BTW to fully remove it follow these steps:

1. Delete the google desktop like you normally do any other program

2: add these files to your trashcan:
/Library/Google: delete entire folder
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins: delete GoogleGadget.webplugin and GoogleOneClikPluginDeluxe.plugin
/Library/LaunchAgents: delete com.google.Desktop.Agent.plist
/Library/LaunchDaemons: delete com.google.Desktop.Daemon.plist, com.google.Desktop.StatUploader.plist, and com.google.GoogleML.plist

3. Then STOP the fallowing processes:

Then you can permanently delete the google files. Note that you must top the above processes before you empty your trashcan or else your mac wont let you permanently delete them.

OS X :: Excessive Data Time Machine Backups?

Oct 8, 2009

I have my Time Machine hooked up to a Time Capsule and it seems that Time Machine is backing up an excessive amount of data throughout the day. Normally the backups are just 5-10 MB, however it seems that once or twice a day it backs up 2-3 GB worth of data. I don't do much saving/creating/modifying of files during the day. just web-based programs, iTunes (no downloads), etc.

MacBook Pro :: Excessive Wired Memory Usage?

Feb 17, 2012

I have a 2010 MacBook Pro with an 2.66 GHz i7 processor, 8 G-Byte of RAM and a 500 G-Byte hard drive with plenty of free space and am running OS X 10.7.3 . Whenever I run a Windows 7 Pro virtual machine under Parallels 7, ~ 6 G-Byte of wired memory is used. I have allocated 4 G-Byte of memory to the virtual machine. I would expect plenty of free space and that used to be the case but no longer. I am tired of an unresponsive machine and spinning beach-balls.

IMac :: Excessive Hard Drive Noise Even With No Activity

Nov 16, 2009

I am getting HD noise like every 20 seconds. Even with no activity. Per the suggestions of another user, I typed this in terminal: iostat -w 1 disk0
And the sound seems to coincide with the output whenever the first column has a value other than 0. So it seems there is activity, it's just not user initiated. Is this some kind of energy saving feature that apple is doing or is it a logging application? Is anyone else having the same issues? Even if you're not, could you run the program and check for 1 or 2 minutes (without any other apps open or doing anything) to see if you also get a value other than 0 in the first column every so often and an associated sound?
