Hi,

I'm super fresh to Mac and was using wineskin to allow me to play WOT on my Macbook Pro, upon restarting my laptop there is still an open install program asking if I want to install or abort.

How do I Cancel/Close or find the program that is trying to run this, as I don't know how to get to the window, I can only see it as windows is shutting down.

thanks

Open up Activity Monitor and force close the process.

Thanks,

I did a lot more searching and found the answer on an Apple support page,

It was a Adware program called Genieo, gone now tho.

Cheers
