I checked this site's Malware Cleaning Guide first but step 2 only gave me Windows options and I have a Mac desktop. Apple security alert told me to go to the Activity Monitor and look under Process Name for the app to quit - "common app names include MacDefender, MacSecurity or MacProtector.
Unfortunately, none of those names is showing up and I don't know enough about computers to know which ones of the 78 app names showing are legitimate and which are suspect. What should I do? I cannot even close Safari until I say OK to the System Alert signal from macsecurity-alert and turning the computer on and off did not help at all. (I am having to use my iPad to send this message, can't use my computer.)
Thank you!
