Question: Remove Annoying MacRumors Banner

I recently joined a forum called MacRumors. Somehow my machine got modified so that I get annoying banner messages. So, I made an attempt to turn off these banners - unchecking the available boxes in the Notifications area of my MacBook - then I got another banner 10 minutes later. grrrrrrr


I want to move every trace of MacRumors from my MacBook Pro. Is that possible? I've attached a screen imageshowing exactly what I wantdeleted.

Answer:
Answer:

I believe this should fix it:

Stop receiving notifications from a website: Choose Safari > Preferences, click Websites, then click Notifications. Find the website in the list, then select Deny.

See: Customize website notifications - Apple Support

It is not malware.

Have you tried clicking on the None icon for MacRumors? That will turn off all notifications from that software.


As for removal download and run Malwarebytes. That should get rid of the adware. Another app that can do the same is Etrecheck.
