How do I delete this pesky dmg? I never asked for it and never uploaded or downloaded it. When I try to "Empty Trash" it is much to clever and says "it is in use."

  • For many files that refuse to go I use the Trash-It app, works for me and not affiliated. – Solar Mike Aug 4 '19 at 5:32
  • Open Terminal
  • type cd .Trash followed by Return
  • type rm NGPlayer followed by Tab
  • the name should now auto-complete
  • type Return to remove the file
  • reboot

Please be aware that this will just remove the DMG from your system, it will not cleanout any malware which might already have gotten installed.

  • I was wondering if it was actually active & running from the dmg, rather than having been 'correctly' installed. – Tetsujin Aug 3 '19 at 16:13

    @Tetsujin So do I. But removing the DMG and rebooting should solve that. – nohillside Aug 3 '19 at 16:26

PC Risk has a page on its removal - How to remove NG Player from Mac?

Ultimately they're trying to sell you their own software, but you can read their guide for free ;-)

You should also invest in a proper, recognised, full-time antivirus suite. Macs are not immune to infection, merely less-likely targets overall.

At minimum, I'd grab the free version of Malwarebytes but ultimately I'd get something that scores well on a recognised test site like AV-TEST
