    My wife has accidentally downloaded a programme which has added a malware to her safari browser. It is something to do with hdreelz.... every time she clicks on a link or a new website it redirects her to hdreelz... It seems to have hijacked the safari browser and redirects her to the hdreelz or its other websites streaming movies, etc..

    Does anyone know how to remove this malware/adware affecting her safari?

    Appreciate your help.

    Thank you

    Do this :

    - go to Safari / Preferences / Extensions, remove any unwanted extension (the ones you did not install).

    - use this tool to remove the malware : http://www.thesafemac.com/art/
