  • Stop pop-up ads and adware in Safari - Apple Support A lot of adware likes to run in the background on your computer. So first, to stop it, you can safe boot your computer by shutting down, then turn it back on holding the shift key. This will start up only the software necessary to run your macbook.
  • I really think you should address Stuart's point in the article. The majority of Java development today has very little to do with web applets. Most Java development is for server side (JSP and the likle, which the common user won't see anyway) but also, more importantly, for desktop applications.
  • The MacKeeper pop up warnings and adware are at best high pressure sales tactics, and at worst highly misleading. Many callers report that when they call the numbers listed for MacKeeper, the high pressure sales model only intensifies.

Fix Some Browser Pop-ups That Take Over Safari.

Common pop-ups include a message saying the government has seized your computer and you must pay to have it released (often called 'Moneypak'), or a phony message saying that your computer has been infected, and you need to call a tech support number (sometimes claiming to be Apple) to get it resolved. First, understand that these pop-ups are not caused by a virus and your computer has not been affected. This 'hijack' is limited to your web browser. Also understand that these messages are scams, so do not pay any money, call the listed number, or provide any personal information. This article will outline the solution to dismiss the pop-up.

Quit Safari

Usually, these pop-ups will not go away by either clicking 'OK' or 'Cancel.' Furthermore, several menus in the menu bar may become disabled and show in gray, including the option to quit Safari. You will likely have to force quit Safari. To do this, press Command + option + esc, select Safari, and press Force Quit.

Relaunch Safari

Mackeeper Pop-up Mac

If you relaunch Safari, the page will reopen. To prevent this from happening, hold down the 'Shift' key while opening Safari. This will prevent windows from the last time Safari was running from reopening.

This will not work in all cases. The shift key must be held at the right time, and in some cases, even if done correctly, the window reappears. In these circumstances, after force quitting Safari, turn off Wi-Fi or disconnect Ethernet, depending on how you connect to the Internet. Then relaunch Safari normally. It will try to reload the malicious webpage, but without a connection, it won't be able to. Navigate away from that page by entering a different URL, i.e., and trying to load it. Now you can reconnect to the Internet, and the page you entered will appear rather than the malicious one.
