    I'm using an Apple Imac.

    I keep receiving a large banner from: cdn.drivecleaner

    Is this legitimate and will it clean my Apple or merely another garbage scam.

    What will serve for the Apple? I used to have this site's recommended cleaners for my former machine and would like some security. Recommendations for my Apple??

    I don't know about macs but on windows I believe that is spyware with the potential to open up for trojans.

    anything that 'pops up' at you is likely malicious.

    if you need something, you can find it yourself. dont' let a pop-up convince you of something.
