    Unhappy Help! Trojans!
    I was scanning my files with ClamXav and this message appeared: See Attatchment

    Can anyone help me? I don't need trojans screwing with my computer. What can I do to eradicate them? All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    According to this discussion, the Trojan.Downloader.Java.ClassLoader-1 is a Windows Trojan. It still should be removed though. Here is the URL that tells what to do and discusses this trojan.

    Windows Trojans have no effect on OS X. You can ignore it or get rid of it, but don't stress about it.

    I know a lot of people do not care, but why leave it and possibly pass it on to some poor unsuspecting Windows user? ClamXav will zap it if you set it up to do so just in case. Sure a Windows Trojan can not hurt OSX But....
