Advanced mac cleaner is a fake utility which infects mac computers and tries to sell itself as a utility which will clean the mac and make it run faster. However, the utility itself slows down the mac and makes up the scan results, thereby attempting to convince the user with the 1000+ issues it tries to say are impacting the system. Instead, we recommend that you click go, utilities, activity monitor, find advanced mac cleaner, and select force quit. Then remove it from the system and use a program to scan your system.
From there, always try to only go to websites which are well known to potentially avoid issues like Advanced Mac Cleaner. Above all, make sure to remove it and clean your system to make sure no remaining pieces are still there. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask below.
If you are constantly getting pop ups from Videojosmooth.com, your computer is likely been infected with adware. Adware is software which provides generally unwanted ads to the user. You will see the browser in chrome take you to videojosmooth.com and will ask if you will allow notifications with the following wording “Just one more step! Allow to continue”. If you click allow and subscribe to notifications, then you will get many pop-up ads from Videojosmooth.com. From there the adware makes other changes to your computer which you may not want.
There are great paid programs which will remove the adware; however, the best free program is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. While the program has a paid version, the free version will still identify and remove adware. Many of the other programs listed on the web will charge to remove so Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is recommended. Additionally, we have a full guide on how to download and use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, including a download link on the page.
