Unfortunately, the Genieo adware uninstaller does not work properly, and leaves hidden software behind. You can find proper removal instructions at either of these links.

AppCleaner
or
iTrash
removes all the hidden settings and will be quicker than the manual methods above. Both are free.
You will also have to change your home page in Safari's preferences.

ONYX is a free tool to clear and reset caches the virus may have impacted.
All the best to you,

I have an older iMac, 10.6.8; it seems to be infected with some thing called genieo. How do I get rid of it?


The only way is to do so manually. Carefully follow Thomas Reed's Genieo Removal Guide to completely rid your machine of the offending adware. Here is an abbreviated version of Thomas Reed's guide:
  1. Quit Genio. Remove /private/etc/launchd.conf.
  2. If it's not present, move on. If it is, trash it and restart the machine (See the warning in the full guide about overlooking this step).
  3. Remove the following files, if present: /Applications/Genieo /Applications/Uninstall Genieo /Applications/Uninstall IM Completer.app ~/Library/Application Support/com.genieoinnovation.Installer/ ~/Library/Application Support/Genieo/ ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieo.completer.download.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieo.completer.update.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieoinnovation.macextension.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieoinnovation.macextension.client.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieo.engine.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/com.genieo.completer.update.plist /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.genieoinnovation.macextension.client.plist /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/com.genieoinnovation.macextension.client /usr/lib/libgenkit.dylib /usr/lib/libgenkitsa.dylib /usr/lib/libimckit.dylib /usr/lib/libimckitsa.dylib
  4. Restart the machine again.
  5. Remove /Library/Frameworks/GenieoExtra.framework and empty the trash.
  6. Remove the Omnibar Extension from your browser. See full guide if you are unsure how to do so.
  7. Reset the Home Page, and possibly default search engine for your browser.

Remove genieo from mac


Hi,
Genieo is a search engine program that will change your personal and default browser settings upon installation. Genieo is not usually considered a virus or malware program (although 21 security solutions list the Mac version as adware), but uses the keywords you enter into the Genieo search engine to generate an excessive number of sponsored links and ads mixed in with your search results. Follow the steps outlined in this article to delete the Genieo search program from your computer and all installed browsers.

Please visit and read it.

How to delete genieo


If you value your privacy, and the stability of your computer, then don't follow any suggestions that include using the genieo adware uninstaller : it leaves active software behind.

The company know this, but seem unable or unwilling to resolve it.

Instead, try to carefully follow the instructions at

How to uninstall genieo from a mac


In finder go to Utilities, then Activity Monitor, then when you see Genieo select it, then select the RED quit button. It will ask you if you "really want to quit Genieo" then simply quit.


Then quit Activity Monitor.


After that, go into your Application folder and drag Genieo to the trash. Then empty trash.


If you are using Safari and it opens to the Genieo page, in the Safari drop down, select preferences, General Tab.


You can then see what is set as your Safari home page. If that page shows Genieo then change it. You may have to go within Safari to what page you want as a home first in order to make it your current page, then select Set to Current Page and that will become your web page when you first open Safari.


I do not know if this will remove all Genieo files. Hope this helps!

How to delete genieo


  • From the Applications folder, open "Uninstall Genieo" and follow the instructions.
  • If the uninstall is missing you can download it from here.

The uninstall does not usually put back your original browser home page and default search provider. You will have to go into your browser preferences and change those yourself to something other than Genieo (in Safari these can be changed in the General preferences...in other browsers such as Firefox or Chrome, look for Options to set the home page...then you may need to follow the instructions in their built-in help for setting the default search provider).
