Hello I just bought my macbook pro and installed one software, now I have a pop up window that offers me more space on the cloud, etc, its a malware or some. What software do you recommend me to clean my mac up and keep it secure. Thank you!

Which one software did you install? Just an FYI, Apple offers upgrading iCloud subscriptions to all of their users, is that where the message is from?

Not nearly enough information, how are we guess what software you installed? Take screenshots (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201361) of what you are seeing and post it here. Assume we have no clue what you are talking about (because we don't) and explain in detail.

In all the browsers on the pc's I maintain, I always install Ghostery (https://www.ghostery.com) and AdBlock Plus (https://adblockplus.org). I always do this on Admin accounts and regular user accounts. This includes Safari on Mac and also Firefox and/or Chrome if someone wants it installed. The only other software I would recommend for Mac would be Malwarebytes (https://www.malwarebytes.com/antimalware/mac/) and a utility called Onyx (http://www.titanium.free.fr/onyx.html). If you download Onyx, make sure you get the correct version for the OS X version your Mac is running.
