Gee, a bit more or a description on what you're wanting to know and do would probably get you some proper helpful and informative answers.

Well I sure don't know what you're wanting to do… :[

Hi Libby and a warm welcome to Mac-Forums.

As our friend Patrick said, some background detail on what you are trying to achieve would help.

In the meantime, I'm guessing that the following Links might answer your question. Please post back, anyway.

I'm sorry guys, you seem like such a great bunch - I've been trying to pin my problem down, but it seems sporadic - please forgive - having a bit of trouble keeping up with all this. I will get back when I've figured out what exactly is wrong.

It's exactly this kind of situation we might be able to help with but we need a bit more information. It would help to know the following:
1. Which OS version are you using?
2. Which devices are you trying to synch the Apple ID across?
3. What exactly goes wrong when you try to sync things?

I think my problem may be something called Mindspark - upon a bit of research I find it's malware. It put hpmyway.com on my toolbar - I did not know where it came from - there was no content on page - I clicked it and that's when I discovered Mindspark. I was suspicious and decided not to click anything else, especially the uninstall link in tiny letters at the bottom of the page. I have an iMac OS X El Capitan ver. 10.11.6. If you could advise how to get rid of this thing I would be most appreciative.

@Libby

This is a quote from one of my Links:

"The Mindspark Toolbar it’s technically not a virus, but it does exhibit plenty of malicious traits, such as rootkit capabilities to hook deep into the operating system, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the user experience. The industry generally refers to it as a “PUP,” or potentially unwanted program."

This comes from: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7187826?start=0&tstart=0

This Link tells you more although it is aimed at PC users: https://www.enigmasoftware.com/mindsparktoolbars-removal/

One of our most recommended apps - Malwarebytes Anti Malware for Macs will get rid of this pest for you: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/cybercrime/2014/11/mindspark-toolbars/

Hopefully, this will assist you in understanding the nuisance of Mindspark and how to delete it - which I suggest you do with haste.

Ian
