How does HP install software and gather data? The printer status is offline or The printer is not responding displays when attempting to print. Step 1: Make sure the printer is ready If the printer is off or unavailable for communication, it is offline. Make sure the printer is ready to receive a print job. Look at the printer. I talked to someone on the phone for over an hour. We thought the problem was resolved, but then about two hours later it happened again. I called Apple support a second time; I had to be transferred to an administrator. We went through some new troubleshooting options, and I thought everything was fine.
About two hours after the second call, the problem got significantly worse.
Safari troubleshooting on Mac
I am no longer being redirected to Yahoo. The computer just stops doing anything that requires the Internet after a random search from the search bar. Safari says that it cannot locate the website host; it does not say I am not connected to the Internet. All of my requests in other apps time out as well. I am mostly just posting this so others can be aware that this is a real issue. There are a bunch of settings that can be modified by current malware that cannot be changed by running Malwarebytes, so you will need to check some more. It might help if you can tell us what files Malwarebytes found for you.
You may have already done some of this while working with Apple, but can't be certain from your description of those calls. From what you have said, I think we can safely say that the problem is not with your network, but limited to something still wrong with your Mac setup. First I need you to read through this pinned posting at the top of the Forum carefully and check each and every item that you have not already done.
If that doesn't solve everything, then try logging in as a different user and see if the problem persists for that user. That will tell you whether it's isolated to your account or not. Next, try a safe-boot hold the Command and "S" keys down after rebooting after you hear the chime. That will tell you if it's something loading early in the boot or login process that is causing this. Sorry, I posted the wrong instructions for a "Safe-boot". Hold the Shift key down until the apple log shows up after rebooting and hear the chime.
Found a fix for this issue Manny2, on a mac, Open Network Preferences, click Advanced, click on the Proxies tab, make sure all the protocols are unchecked, that fixed the internet for me. Search page. I wound up just wiping the Mac clean, reinstalling MacOS, and rebooting the computer - ie.
Deleting all my files, pictures, passwords, settings, etc. I did not restore my computer to an external hard drive back up, as I assumed this would just cause the issue to be reinstalled. The last senior advisor I spoke to ultimately agreed or relented that this was the only way to ensure the problem was resolved. Everything has been perfect and even faster than before. I know it is a huge pain in the ass to wipe the computer clean and start over, but it was MUCH more efficient than restarting the computer in recovery mode every time I did a random google search and my internet froze up.
I know this is a last resort, but I thought I would pass the information along in case it is helpful. Its probably not what you want to hear, but I borderline knew this was what I needed to do from the very beginning, but wound up just wasting a ton of time close to a full working day of my life trying to figure it out an "easier"way.. It sucks, but Its not the end of the world, and it fixed my problem.
I hope this helps someone.
I tried this, but unfortunately, it didn't work. Thank you for replying. Yes, I wiped my MacBook clean yesterday. IMHO, good to just go ahead and bite the bullet and get it over with. I am running macOS Mojave So the issue is happening on Mac with current OS also. I have been having this exact problem - same Accidental Flash install and Safari redirecting to Yahoo. And not internet access from this computer.
Trying the Proxie fix- then will try the reboot. I will try anything before wiping this clean..
I immediately deleted it and thought that might prevent further issues. This week I started having issues with the yahoo redirect in safari and yesterday lost connectivity to the internet. Once unchecked, I was able to access the internet and everything seems to have gone back to normal for now This issue is unfortunately not dead.
