I have a MacBook Air with OS Yosemite. I've been trying all kinds of malware removal to get rid of " Ads by Media Player" but fail, can anybody suggest what's the best way of doing this?

Many thanks.

Am i even using the right application for this removal ? Thank you.

+ 1 for Eset.

I have their Cyber Security Pro on all 3 of my Macs and no problems at all in over 2 years.
