    Is that a question or a statement ?

    What are you installing then ?

    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Do you have Genieo installed / running on your Mac ?

    There is a possibility that this " installer " is malware or an indicator of malware.
    Check out these 2 articles.

    Again, I can not judge from where I am sitting that this is malware you are running, but I would check it out.

    No worries mate.

    Maybe you could write a few lines as to what you did to fix it .... it might help other members in the future.

    Oh yeah, of course.

    Turns out Genieo was the problem, so I simply followed the steps from The Safe Mac Adware Removal Guide : Genieo, the link has been posted above. Make sure to follow the steps as accurately as you can, because there's a chance that you may break your Macbook, but they also provide a way to recover from that.

    Read everything properly, or you'll be putting yourself at risk. Thanks again
