I am pretty much 100% certain that I have somehow gotten a virus installed into my Safari.
My homepage and default search engine changes to "Trovi" every time I restart Safari no matter how many times I reset it.
My first thought was to remove all extensions but there weren't any in the extensions folder! However, when I opened the
Extensions.plist file, it shows over 368 extensions under
Apple-hosted Updates List. Does anybody know where I can find these extensions and delete them? Here are some example extensions in that list:
I can't seem to locate these files on my Mac. Any help is appreciated.
ALSO: I would like input on this. While the virus was infecting my computer, I noticed that I thought the dot characters that hide the password I type in to unlock my computer looked bigger than normal. Then after the restore to Time Machine backup, I can confirm that the dots that hide my password to login to my computer are smaller again. Could it be that whatever kind of virus that I stupidly got on my computer was monitoring my login password???
