Hi there, I am brand new to this site and I have a question about my mac - 10.5.8. I was noticing the computer had been acting a bit slow lately, so I backed it up, deleted all of my photos..etc. and tried to delete a few applications, unused logs, and other trash/leftovers with 'CleanMyMac'. I then accidentally installed some sort of "toolbar", as I wasn't paying much attention at the time, and am regretting it now as I see that I am unable to uninstall it. This is the website where I found the 'installer': http://installl.com/d/ http://alert.client.conduit.com/Alerts/Faq/?aid=1784823 I then noticed an alert icon on my regular finder computer toolbar that states "Alerts are instant announcements that appear right on our desktop.... The website will occasionally send out important news alerts... " Now I've installed ClamXav, as well as Sophos, to try and get rid of whatever this is- It's not in my application's folder, I've gone through the activity monitor- and the only thing I saw was two 'red tagged' google chrome helper and plug-in. Now when I open Safari, Chrome and other applications- none of the shortcut keys work, nor do the controls work if I manually open them from the dropdown menu. Which also brings me to the mess of not being able to load in any plug-in nor see any videos and such. Sorry this is such a long post, I just am confused and I don't like to have excess on my mac, especially when I don't know what it is. Thanks.
