I have malware on my computer and I'm oblivious about how to remove it.

    Back when I used a windows PC like 8 years ago I was aware of stuff like Ad Aware, etc. but I don't know if that's still a thing. I guess I could have looked into it. Well, here is a pic of my homepage for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome now.

    Also, as you will see there is a Yahoo! search bar. I didn't see any way to remove it in View so I'm assuming that's malware too because I used to have Yahoo! malware. That is in Firefox. I use Chrome, though, so I'm not too concerned with that. The main problem I'd wish for people to address is my homepage on Chrome. This malware / virus prevents me from downloading from megaupload.com, which I would really like to have access to.

    I've had good luck with AdwareMedic. However, sometimes it misses some things so if you need a little more cleaning try ClamXAV in the App Store.
