    My Safari browser seems to suddenly keep redirecting to MacKeeper ads. Have done the malware fixes, but Malwarebytes finds nothing, and I have no extensions (well, 1Password) on Safari...

    Anyone have an idea how to stop this stupid redirecting in Safari? Thanks in advance.

    Hold Shift before opening Safari, then double click to open. This starts a new session. Then go to preferences and check your homepage settings.

    I have used this in the past to remove browser hijackers. It is shareware and free for the first 20 days.

    Just goes to show how (un)trustworthy MacKeeper is.
