On your computer, your browser homepage shows content from “Genieo” and you wish to remove it. You may have installed this accidentally.
Quit the Genieo app, if it is running. If you do not see the “house” icon in the menu bar, the Genieo app may not be running.
Move the following item to the trash.
If you fail to find this file, pause here. You may proceed, at your own risk, but need to exercise caution. If you have run the Genieo uninstaller, this is normal, as it will remove the launchd.conf file, and you can safely remove any of the three files in step 3 ending in “.dylib”. Otherwise, you must not remove any of those files! Removing any .dylib file without removing the launchd.conf file will cause your computer to freeze and become unable to restart.
It is possible that you won’t have the launchd.conf file or any .dylib file installed, in which case you can safely remove all other files.
This can happen if you opt out of changing your browser’s home page during Genieo installation.
Move the following items to the trash.
If you successfully remove the launchd.conf file, but cannot find the other files listed above, that will not cause a problem.
After it starts back up, move the following item to the trash, if present.
It is now safe to empty the trash.
Remove the Omnibar browser extension, if present.
Select the unwanted extension and click “uninstall”, repeat this step as required.
Click on the trash can/rubbish bin of the unwanted extension, repeat this step as required.
Click “Remove” for the unwanted Extension, repeat this step as required.
Change the home page and possibly the search engine settings in your browser’s preferences.
