Hi, try forcing to quit using the option+command+esc combo and see if it is there. If not that means is in resident memory. So go to your apps folder and open Terminal. Once there write 'top' and hit enter. You should see it there, running... if so, do a search for "kill an app in terminal" to get instructions about removing it from memory. Once off running try to erase it. Remember that there is also an option of erasing using the option key while asking to delete something... Hope this helps.

I have been spared but try the site by Thomas Reed: there yo can find the adware removal guide & an app called AdwareMedic (donateware).

How to completely remove a program from a Mac!

All of us who use macs sometimes, or occasionally can't get that program off our computer!
Well now you can!
Step 1- Go on Finder Step 2- Click on "Applications" Step 3- Find that pesky program! Step 4- Drag it to the trash can. Step 5- Empty the trash can & Voila'.
However, again, sometimes, we face that very program that just won't leave! No matter how much we try! After reviewing & testing many macintosh programs for 2 1/2 weeks, I found the perfect & free program called 'Trash It!'
Its a simple program, all there is to it is plainly downloading it.Once its done, you're ready to delete anything you want with a simple click & adding your password!

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 ~/Library/Application Support/com.genieoinnovation.Installer/ ~/Library/Application Support/Genieo/ ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ ~/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.

New multi-function Canon Pixma 310--scanner not working

Step1 Make sure the Mac computer is on, and close all programs. Locate your hard drive icon on the desktop. Generic, non-personalized systems will simply say "Macintosh HD" by the icon; however, if the user or owner has personalized their Mac's space, it may have a different name. Regardless, the icon looks the same: it appears as a small, silver metal rectangle that resembles a piece of computer hardware. Step2 Click on the "Applications" folder once you're viewing the contents of the Mac's hard drive. The Applications folder holds all programs that have been installed on the machine. Step3 Scan the list of available applications to see find the one(s) you seek to uninstall. There are two ways to uninstall the program once you've located it. One option is clicking while holding the Ctrl key once to select the file, a small menu will pop up. Select "Move to Trash". A second option is to locate the file in the Applications folder, select it, and drag it to the Trash on the desktop. Step4 Ensure that you've removed all files associated with the program, in case they all weren't located in the Applications folder. Use Ctrl + F and use the appropriate keywords to search the name of the program. Any findings will disclose the location of the associated files. Located each file in the designated folder, and delete. Step5 Know that you can also install and uninstall programs on a Mac using an actual program called an installer. Recommendations for the best such program, including directions for installing and uninstalling, can be found online.

If that doesn't work, please let me know and will further pursue your issue.

Pictures uploaded from my cellphone and are saved on my desktop

First close any application that you may have open that used the photo...or that you used to view or edit the photo.
The problem could be that the application or photo was in use. Usually it won't allow you to delete a file that is in use by a program.
Once you are sure that the applications are closed. then click on the photo (if this is a Mac) and press and hold down the the apple command key (one on each side of your spacebar) then hit the delete key. The item should disappear...(it moves it to the trash)
Or you can just drag and drop it to the trash.  
Hope this helps.  Have a great day!
