    A warm welcome to Mac-Forums.

    I am assuming that you are asking us how to remove this irritant from your Mac?

    I am Linking you to two sites that walk you through the process; but as far as I can see Malwarebytes app would probably do the trick. Download from here: https://www.malwarebytes.com/free-multi-os-download/. Use the Trial version for 30 days (free) then let it revert to the free version automatically. Great app. Widely recommended on these Forums.

    You guys in Indiana using a different calendar? Summer officially ended a little over a couple weeks ago (September 22nd).

    Maybe it's still very warm...and still feels like Summer.

    That's the problem with suspicious apps/programmes. Mawarebytes app would/possibly have (if you downloaded it as suggested) - identified all these sources and can delete them.

    Tough job as you say.

    Looks like you are on top of things now, however.
