Hello @all,

How can delete the serve.bannersdontwork virus from Safari on Mac?

About every 8-20 clicks Safari opens a webside named serve.bannersdontwork.

I can not remove this with my Avira antivirus programm.

Can anybody help me?



Hallo an alle,

Ich habe mir einen Virus eingefangen, serve.bannersdontwork, auf Safari.

Alle 8-20 clicks öffnet sich diese Seite "serve.bannersdontwork" und leitet mich auf andere weiter.

Über mein Antivirusprogramm Avira konnte ich den Virus nicht beheben.

Auch die erweiterung AdBlock hilf hier nicht weiter.

Wer weiß, oder hat eine Ahnung, wie man diesen Virus wieder los wird?

Danke schonmal im voraus!!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Safari

    This is not the work of malware. At most, it is being caused by some adware that you were fooled into installing, but it could very well be something else as well. See:

    From the Safari menu bar, select


    Safari Preferences Extensions


    Turn all extensions OFF and test. If the problem is resolved, turn extensions back ON and then disable them one or a few at a time until you find the culprit.


    If you wish, you may be able to salvage the errant extension by uninstalling and reinstalling it. Its settings will revert to their defaults. If the extension still causes a problem, remove it permanently or refer to its developer for support.
