I agree with whiteshark, most likely the trojans you downloaded are designed for windows PC's..

The reason norton detects them is so you don't accidentally spread them to windows users...

But realistically the chances of you getting a Virus on OS X is very very slim indeed...

I wouldn't bother with Norton, unless you are on a network with other windows machines, in which case you might want to leave it on so you don't inadvertadly spread viruses to the windows users.


But most viruses will NOT affect your mac. The ones that will have to ask you for your password so they can install themselves...Don't give your password to any install dialogs you don't intend to install..
