virus
 
i think i have a virus on my mac. how do i get rid of it?

I have to say I highly doubt that, there's barely any viruses for Mac. What makes you think you have a virus?

There are no Self Installing, Self Replicating Virus's (that is what a true virus is) for OSX. There are 2 Trojans you get from downloading pirated software and Porn Video Codecs.

What makes you think you have Malware on your computer? What is it doing or not doing?

I wasn't the original poster, but I have something too! I'm so mad. Sometimes the cursor starts going all crazy all over my computer really fast. I know I opened something bad on my work email. That's when it started. Help!!!!

Thanks- did that. I downloaded clamx but couldnt' figure it out. I'm just a ignorant elementary teacher trying to fix her computer so I can use it again. Someone recommended coming to this place for help. Didn't mean to waste your time.

I had something similar a while back - turned out the optical mouse didn't like my shiny mouse mat. Changed the mat and problem went away. It certainly isn't a virus as there aren't any for macs.
