Remove S.klmtm2k6 from an Apple Mac

Remove S.klmtm2k6 from an Apple Mac, can be a bit tricky as most of the anti-virus don’t detect the malware. The only solution is to download MalwareBytes for Mac. Download


I tried to fix the problem manually by removing all the cache and the extensions from Safari. It was in vain because the virus called Webshoppy installed in the application’s folder keep coming back. The only solution was to eradicate with an anti-malware. I don’t recommend dragging Webshoppy from the application to the trash.

Stop censoring your Internet!

Against ad-blocking. 

The Internet has changed the way we access information; we are constantly looking at our smartphones, tablets and computers to watch the news and videos, check our emails and use social networks. We take these things for granted without ever really thinking about the cost of providing these pieces of information. Using ad blockers will prevent the free access of professionals who are willing to share their knowledge and passion. People who share their expertise on the net have to pay for their equipment, computers, camcorders, web hosting, utility bills and so on, in order to provide you with interesting content to learn from or enjoy. This content has to be practical, well prepared, researched and formatted to make it attractive enough for an audience. The bottom line is: online content has a cost.

If we want to keep our free Internet we all need to contribute.

Authors, journalists, researchers and bloggers all dedicate their time and intellect to producing great content, most of the time for free. The least we can do for these people is to thank and support them by allowing a few ads on our screens. Most websites feature non-intrusive ads, as we all hate pop-ups and auto-playing videos – these kinds of sites are seen as spammers and receive few visitors unless they offer hot streaming videos, illegal downloads or pornographic content, which drain a lot of traffic. In this situation, I can understand the use of ad blockers. But overall, using an anti-advertising system does more harm than good, especially for YouTubers.

A subscription service is part of YouTube’s plan to find a way around ad-blocking programs. Launching on the 22 of October 2015, Google has now introduced a paywall called Youtube Red, which allows viewers to watch videos without ads and to access more videos.

Clearly, the fact that more and more users are choosing to block ads, as well as the cost of the infrastructure (around £2.5 billion) is a limitation of the current business model. As strange as it may sound, with more than 1 billion monthly viewers, Google does not make a profit from YouTube. This most likely explains why Google has never actually fought back against the anti-ads systems.

The question is: who is taking advantage of that system? The viewer, who avoids five seconds of ads on YouTube, or maybe Adblock Plus, the most popular plugin for Internet browsers? Yes! Eyeo GmbH, the company that owns Adblock Plus, receives money from Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Taboola to whitelist their ads. I don’t know for sure exactly how much this unethical company receives to whitelist Google’s Ads, but rumour has it that it is around $25 million. Eyeo was accused of highway robbery by Scott Cunningham, Senior Vice President of the Internet Advertising Bureau. In my opinion it is extortion to block ads and charge money to unblock them; however, it is an ingenious idea!

Ad Blocking on the rise

According to PageFair, more and more users are installing ad-blocking software. AdBlocking is most popular among younger users – 41% of Internet users aged between 18 and 29 used the AdBlocking software, rising to 54% if only young males are counted.

Businesses therefore have to find other ways of generating their earnings, if they are to avoid losing money. Unless we come to our senses regarding the ethics of ad-blocking and cease using it, YouTube Red is just the beginning. This is not good for the future of the web

My choice of add-ons for your browsers

Browser add-ons can make your Internet experience more entertaining.  Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox are the most used. I must say as a Mac user I like using Chrome with LastPass. Which are also available for IE, Safari, Firefox and Opera browsers. I keep logging on and off from my social network, my client websites, my servers and my supplier sites. When I started my business, I was having security issues with my passwords. We have to face it; we cannot manage our credentials anymore. That is already daunting task for a consumer, so we can image how much difficult it must be for a business to solve this challenging daily routine.

LastPass is free, and it does an excellent job to remember my usernames, passwords, addresses and my credit cards. If you want to use it on your tablets or smartphones, it costs £8 per year. You can use LastPass to automatically log-in to any site once you have inserted your data, you will never have to worry about forgetting your password again.

Very useful features. When you need to get registered from any sites LatPass fills out your name, address, and other information automatically on the form. If you want to store extra passwords for Wi-Fi networks or any personally identifiable information, all of these password managers include a secure notes section.

Sesame and share sites
For those who go online from Internet cafes or untrusted computers, you should use LastPass Sesame with a USB drive.

I find Sesame for advanced users only and not really practical. But the feature to share any website to give the access to your colleague, friends, or a family member, without revealing the password of the site is very good.

How to install LastPass
It is very easy to install; you need to go LastPass download. Click on the recommended tab and download. I recommend that you follow this tutorial.
