Loads normally for me.


Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. Also try the Safe Mode.


Safe Mode - About El Capitan
also Sierra


Safe Mode Startup – El Capitan. also Sierra


If it works in the Safe Mode, try running this program when booted normally and then copy and paste the output in a reply. The program was created by Etresoft, a frequent contributor. Please use copy and paste as screen shots can be hard to read. Click “Share Report” button in the toolbar, select “Copy to Clipboard” and then paste into a reply. This will show what is running on your computer. No personal information is shown.

a pop-up or ad. If you're unsure, avoid interacting with the popup or ad and close the Safari window or tab.'
