Hello, my MacBook as never had any issues and my sister in law visited and recommended watching movies on sites like viooz, mega share, and put locker. I picked up some adware and a virus which I thought I got rid of by using ad medic and deleting files from my cache but after restarting my computer will get to my login picture. I'll click it, type my password and a loading bar appears. It makes it half way about 50% and freezes. Any ideas? Is this adware, virus, or faulty hard drive? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This looks like a malware issue (either that or Ad Medic has somehow corrupted files in the process of removing the adware). If so, I'd recommend posting here: http://www.geekstogo...alware-removal/

That section is for windows only malware removal.  The OP was referred here since it is Apple.

Ah ok, wasn't aware of that. Thanks for notifying me :)
