Tips to fix Safari for Max OS X after malware attack.

Nowadays there’s nothing unusual in the fact that Mac OS X systems are also the target of adware, browser hijackers and other potentially unwanted utilities. Some time ago Mac computers were much safer and resistant before malware attack. Today Mac OS X is no longer that invulnerable. Interference of potentially unwanted programs into Mac systems is obviously the consequence of lack of due anti-malware application which would be able to defend them. Safari, the most widely used browser for Mac computers, may unexpectedly start spewing out persistent advertisements, pop-up windows and struggle with the issue of permanent redirection to random pages of bad reputation. If this is what’s going on with your Safari at this very moment, then it’s time to get it repaired.

The tutorial for fixing Safari consists of the following important milestones:

  1. Changing the home page of Safari by removing browser hijackers from the home page settings.
  2. Deleting suspicious extensions added by adware or browser hijackers.
  3. Full reset of Safari (optional).
