Find that process, figure out what it is and then asses if you need it. If you don’t, kill it and make sure it’s not part of your start up routines.

Thanks MediumRoastSteam  but how do i find that process ? i don't know what SyncWebSearch is or where to look .
 

Go to activity monitor, type that in the search box. I don’t have it on mine.

Let me know if you find it. When you start up, click allow.

Report back and we go from there.

Feel free to PM me.

Think it syncs your search history over multiple Apple devices if you have them.

Laissez les bons temps rouler

You can, but it’s not about killing them. It’s about finding out what they are and where they get started up.

If you kill them, they will just come back again after reboot.

I think the process you refer to is called "SafariBookmarksSyncAgent". 

@Django57, like I said, I don't have such process running on my computer which has the latest OSX.  You need to figure out what has installed it and where it's coming from. It's likely to be 3rd party as every google search I tried I get nothing back.

Malwarebytes . To be honest i didn't think Apple needed stuff like this so i've never bothered i was surprised when the lady on the support chat recommended it . 

https://www.malwarebytes.com

Common misconception. Sophos is an excellent free, lightweight enterprise grade antivirus which is also an option.
