    I was trying to go to Macrumors on my iMac and ended up on Mac-Pops.com. A pop up comes up before I can go to any other site and I am unable to use my browser. Is there a way to remove this so my browser goes to the correct home page that I set. I am unable to access preferences to check my home page or any other settings.

    Thank you!

    I guess you want a new Pope then. Gather the Cardinals for a vote.

    Quit Safari then hold the shift key when you relaunch it to stop it from redirecting to that web site. It would be a good idea to also run AdwareMedic like redheeler mentioned.
