Apple Armors Up With Genieo Removal Tool


Antivirus vendor Bitdefender has released its Bitdefender Adware Removal Tool to remove aggressive adware that can alter users' search results, inject ads and monitor Web sites visited specifically for the Mac environment. The tool scans a user's system for adware and its elements and, if detected, asks to remove all traces of the software and resets browser settings that were changed by the adware, eliminating unwanted ads and modified default search results. Adware-heavy software doesn't constitute malware, but it can spread through fake application installers and codecs. The removal tool so far recognizes and removes only Genieo. Although Genieo often comes with an uninstaller, users regularly report that it doesn't work or it leaves active software behind.
