    A friend of mine gave his mac book to his daughters and they ended up downloading Mac Keeper (the one with the robot). So our IT spent the morning cleaning up his computer. I was right beside listening while doing my stuff.

    Basically, Mac Keeper was asking to install certain FLASH PLUGIN, even at the Google home page that does not requires flash. It seemed that it needed flash installed to infiltrate the computer. Even with no browser open every other software was running slow.

    I believe we deleted flash and I do not know what else but after a good hour the computer was just fine.

    If you find any additional problems you may want to try this to solve it. It is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac scans for and removes code that degrades system performance or attacks your system. It was originally called The Safe Mac, then Adware Medic and currently Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac.
