    Hello,

    I always use adblock plugins.

    In Safari, when I visit Gmail, Yahoo or blogs and when I write, the ads open themselves automatically every second.

    I cleaned the cookies and caches and setted again the adblock plugins, but the ad keeps pissing off me.

    GlimmerBlocker is died. I have Adblock Plus actiavted, but it doesn't block the ads.

    I wasn't aware of that extension "shoopiMac" that is installed in Safari. I removed it, but Safari keeps opening the aggressive ads.

    Are you using Ad Block or Ad Block Plus - they look VERY similar. I know you said ABP but you might double-check.

    The folks behind Ad Block unilaterally decided that ads on some domains are fine and they allow them through.

    The adblock plugins mean any ad-block plugins and extensions. I use only Adblock Plus. I have already setted, but Safari kept opening the ads.

    If you are getting ads opening up on you on places like Yahoo, double-check your settings as the previous poster mentioned. That kind of thing should not be happening.

    Since you had an extension loaded you knew nothing about, it wouldn't hurt to run Adware Medic, just to be safe.

    IMHO Adguard adblocker works 100% for me, better experience then I ever had with Ablocker or Adblocker plus.

    It sounds like you may have picked up some adware installed on there.

    Boot to safe mode by holding the shift key at boot. That will prevent any login or startup items from launching. Then DL and run this free adware remove app to kill off any adware you may have on there. Reboot after.
