It sounds like you installed some crap along with something else. Have you downloaded any “cleaner” or “optimiser” tools for your Mac lately? Don’t.

Download and run Malwarebytes for Mac from here:


It used to be just an application, but it needs to actually be installed, nowadays.

It will tell you whether you have any malware installed.

Thanks S, will try that; I don’t use Safari hardly ever or download anything.. mostly Firefox guy.. Very rare open Safari.
I think I got it fixed without software, but look like cool app to have.
