I was looking for movies on Google, clicked on one, and now I keep getting these web pages opening up telling me to get security for my Mac. I just bought it like two days ago.

I already got adblock and that ghost thing. What else do I do? I also (think) I deleted my cookies.

I think that it might be quite possible that you did a little more that just click on a movie. Always be wary of websites that tell you that you need to install something or add an extension.

Try running this: AdwareMedic

I had the same. AdwareMedic sorted it.

Thanks, it worked. I did everything you all suggested, and it worked. Thanks.
I'll be more careful in the future. :)
