Rastertodnp is software that integrates with the main browser installed on your Mac computer. Rastertodnp can easily become part of your Chrome, Safari, Firefox or other popular browsing program.If this has happened to you, then you have likely discovered certain very obvious changes to your browser’s appearance. For instance, users normally first come to realize that their browser homepage has been replaced with a new one. And soon after they may also notice that the default search engine is no longer the same as it was either. In addition, Rastertodnp may also add a new toolbar to the browser, as well as start generating tons of online ads directly on your screen. These can come in every shape and size such as popups and banners to name a few. And they can obstruct your browsing, making it extremely difficult to navigate the web. Adding to this chaos is the instance of page redirects that are often triggered within your browser and forward you to various sponsored web locations.
And the most infuriating part of it is that so long as Rastertodnp exists on your Mac, you won’t be able to do a single thing about these annoying changes and online ads. In order to be able to effectively remove them, you will first have to remove Rastertodnp. And we will show you how to do that with the help of the guide that’s just below this post.
Rastertodnp for Mac
Rastertodnp for Mac acts as a tool for online advertising. Rastertodnp for Mac is used by its developers to promote certain products, services or websites and, in exchange for this, generate revenue.You may have heard of popular online business models such as Pay Per View or Pay Per Click. This is exactly the principle that software like Rastertodnp is rooted in. Hence, there is little to no useful functionality that a program of this kind can offer to the end-user. All of it is there to serve the online advertising industry and line the pockets of the creators of this software.
What is Rastertodnp?
Experts classify Rastertodnp as a browser hijacker because of how it ‘hijacks’ the settings of your browser. But in addition, Rastertodnp is also seen as a potentially unwanted program or PUP. This is so for several reasons, but one very significant one has to do with the risk of exposing your system to external threats such as ransomware, Trojans, spyware and other viruses.That’s not to say that Rastertodnp is a virus as well – far from it. But it may happen that as a result of its activities you do at some point encounter some treacherous malware.
The Rastertodnp app
Developers most commonly rely on program bundles for the distribution of their products like the Rastertodnp app. Therefore, you most likely downloaded the Rastertodnp app as part of the setup of some other type of software. Usually, the ‘host’ program is some free system optimization tool or similar. And the browser hijacker is added to it as an optional install.

Remove “Rastertodnp” will damage your computer from Mac
The following instructions will allow you to remove “Rastertodnp will damage your computer” in two ways:
- The manual instructions will allow you to remove it on your own by downloading 2 software suites which will show you the folders the threat is located in. Installing, scanning, and deleting everything will require 1-2 hours of your time, depending on your speed and the threat itself.
Note: If “Rastertodnp” has an in-built ability to restore itself on a restart, the manual steps will not prevent that. We recommend the automatic removal.
- Download SpyHunter for Mac (one of the apps used in the manual instructions), scan with it, and if you decide to use the program, it will likely require about 15-20 minutes. This, however, requires an active subscription for SpyHunter, which means either to use the trial version or purchase the software.
1. Download EtreCheck from the Appstore and scan for any “Rastertodnp” unsigned files. Delete them. (You can skip this step altogether and download and scan with Spyhunter instead if you don’t want to double-check things).
2. Download and install Spyhunter for Mac. Scan for any malicious files.
3. The app will show you which files are infected. Either use SpyHunter to delete them for you (the automatic removal) or do it manually, which means tracking down each detected location by yourself and deleting the file.
4. In most cases start with /private/var/root/Library/Application Support/.”Rastertodnp”/”Rastertodnp”
5. In Finder press Shift+Command+G to open the Find window.
6. Search for the /var directory. Then proceed and look for the /root folder inside.
7. It will most likely be locked and you will need additional permissions to meddle with it.
8. Press command+I and scroll to sharing and permissions. Add your user name to permissions.
9. Now you should be able to access the /root folder and proceed and locate the /Library folder inside it. Proceed to do the same until you are inside the /Application Support folder.
10. It is possible that the folder you look for is hidden, if that is the case use command+shift+. to locate and find the file you want to delete.
11. Delete the “Rastertodnp” file.
