I have a Mac G5 desktop with OX 10.5.8. My Safari browser was hacked by TH malware, and so I deleted it because it is too old to update to Mavericks.

I am now using Firefox. I see now that the trojan is embedded in my Bookmarks bar, on the drop down menu items. I'm am having trouble resetting Firefox, nor can I get the Malwarebytes that I downloaded to open and run. I have cleared the history, cookies, cache on my computer. I have also deleted Java, MSN, and the old email Mail and its settings from the hard drive.

I'm a low-tech techie. Thank you for your ideas,

Are you able to give screenshots or other information so we know more about your problem.

I have no idea what the trojan is / was but there have been quite a few reports of pseudo ransomware. This demands money and makes it appear that Firefox is locked up. If you are lucky and have that sort of problem it is easy to get out of.

If you have book marked sites with malware Firefox provdes you an option to forget about sites that may resolve the issue.

Malwarebytes is for Windows. I am not aware they do a version for Mac.s

There may be paid for or trial software advertising & mentioning the Malwarebytes name. It is also possible, or even likely that there are scams also using the Malwarebytes name. TAKE CARE
