Greetings! Get AdwareMedic (now bundled with Malwarebytes): http://www.adwaremedic.com/index.php It won’t prevent the problem from occurring (even having extensions like AdBlock Plus don’t help there), but does clean up the mess after crapware gets installed. We’ve learned to truly despise things like MacKeeper and Tune Up My Mac - but Adware Medic can get rid of ‘em.
