How do I remove "googleadservices.com"?  It interrupts moving to a clicked link and reroutes me to a blank page with the address: www.googleadservices.com".  Thanks.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), mid-2012, 13', nonretina display

    If you've installed "NetBarrier," remove it according to the developer's instructions, after backing up all data.

    Select the text below (not including the blank space at the end of the line), then copy it to the Clipboard (command-C):

     

    www.googleadservices.com

     

    Launch the Network Utility application in any of the following ways:

     

    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)

     

    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

     

    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Network Utility in the icon grid.

     

    Step 1

     

    Select the Lookup tab and paste into the address field (command-V). Press return. Post the output that appears below – the text, please, not a screenshot.

     

    Step 2

     

    Select the Ping tab and do the same.

    From the Safari menu bar, select
