I received an email that told me my Facebook account was blocked. Since I don't have one under that email address I tried to forward the email to Facebook security as a potential scam. As soon as I clicked the forward button, strange things started happening. It opened up Safari and it started downloading something called "Microdosft Antivirus 2013" and it went right to my downloads then seemed to take over Safari. The only thing I did was to try to forward the email.
After that every time I opened Safari it kept telling me I had a Microsoft Security allert of potential threats (its lists three viruses) and it asked me to click on "clean computer" immediately. Of course I didn't. It had a couple other places to click and windows to expand but I left it all alone.
The only problem is that every time I tried to open safari after that happened, it kept going back to this page - like its locked me out of safari and it won't let me use it until I "clean computer".
I reset Safari chosing all the options for the reset including getting rid of passwords, etc. but Safari now freezes when I try to shut it down and I have to Force Quit every time so I switched to another browser.
Does anyone know how I can uninstall Safari and reinstall it?
I'm going to reinstall MacKeeper and see if it can help. I had to remove it a while ago because I was getting conflicts none of the techies could solve that they thought were being caused by MacKeeper. Guess I should have kept it on?!.
Its almost 1am. I hate the ******** who create this crap. I would love to have some hacker send viral emails to them that steal their passwords and make their lives **** to teach them a lesson.
