Okay, stab in the dark here, but I am at the end of my understanding.

I'm not a slouch at troubleshooting a Mac, but man, I cannot get rid of the weknow.ac virus through any means that the internet has provided. I even followed an entire reddit thread only to get to the bottom with one guy who was me - "I have done all this and it's still there!"

I'm absolutely willing to spend money, it's a very important computer, and also brand new.

It seems like there are so many products out there and half aren't even legit. I have tried all the usual free versions of malware repair (that I know of), and probably some not legit ones in my desperations. All come back clean, but it's still there hijacking my browser.

So my question is, even a paid service, what is a legitimate way to remove malware, specifically, a product that is updated to match the evolving nature of these viruses?

I'm not rich, but I'll pay to get rid of this!

Thanks in advance,

Kay
