Adware Removal Guide : ClickAgent

Published January 4th, 2014 at 5:29 PM EDT , modified January 4th, 2014 at 5:34 PM EDT

ClickAgent takes the form of a Safari extension pretending to be Adobe Flash Player, which inserts advertisements on pages that shouldn’t contain them, or changes existing advertisements to its own. Details can be found in Fake Adobe Flash players persist.

Removal

Delete any Safari extensions claiming to be Adobe Flash Player. The real Flash Player does not use a browser extension. (See Identifications > Examine Browser Extensions for instructions on how to locate your browser extensions.)
