    Do you have any ad blockers installed?

    Run MalwareBytes as well:

    I'm sorry that I can't remember what the Apple Store did for me, but that Mac keeper is just try to get you to pay for it. When I took my 2009 mbp in because of the same problem, the genius informed me that I didn't have any virus, and that it's almost improbable that I would even get one. Hopefully another with more expertise with Mac 's can help you.

    You'll need to Google you issue and follow one of the guides to uninstall these. They hide several downloads and it's very annoying. All in an effort to get you to buy their useless software/app.

    pop ups from Mac keeper

    You have no virus other than the malicious download they put there.

    DUDE - quit looking at porno- lol
    Just clear your history , cookies , just down and re-boot - should be good to go
    Then add adblocker- adguard- there are a few in app store

    I'm pretty well versed in ad blockers and so forth. Just reporting that over the last few weeks pop ups and unders have become a problem again. It seems every once in a while the ad scum figure a way around your defences before the good guys manage to get on top of them again.

    This happened to me last night. What I did was download MalwareBytes, run the app, once it finds malware, delete it, and restart your mac. Run MalwareBytes one more time to confirm if anything else is found. If not, you're good to go
