I have some pretty invasive adware going on right now. It is in both Safari and Chrome, so I don't believe it is an extension (I have also looked through all extensions). I have also tried searching for all the recommended adware agents found on the Apple Support Forum (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203987). I have also looked at recent downloads and I can't find anything suspicious.

I am wondering if anyone can recommend some safe software to target the adware.

    You are a bit vague on which adware you are actually fighting and which specific tools etc. you've already tried. Does the answer to apple.stackexchange.com/questions/177019/… help? If not, please provide more details about the specific adware you are facing. – nohillside Mar 30 '15 at 17:26

    Sorry for being vague. The problem was I followed other articles searching for known adware, and couldn't find it. So I didn't know what I was looking for! However, the link you posted helped my find a free and safe solution that found the adware. Thank You! and Thanks to AdwareMedic.com – fresh5447 Mar 30 '15 at 17:32

  • @buscar see the comment by the OP (second comment above). The problem is solved for him. – nohillside Mar 30 '15 at 19:47
