    Unhappy Flashback malware removal tool
    Mac beginner here. I downloaded lion flashback removal tool yesterday and have had trouble accessing the internet ever since. Sites won't load unless I turn airport off then back on again. I have since found out that the download was for lion users without java installed, which I have. Has anyone else had this problem and how do I fix it.
    Thanks

    It's not likely the removal tool has anything to do with this. Unplug your router and modem, wait a couple minutes, then plug them back in. Hopefully that will do the trick. Sometimes these things go flakey and need a reset. I find myself doing it every month or two.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Flashback malware removal tol
    Thanks for that. It does seem to be a wi fi fault and just a coincidence that it happened after I downloaded the malware tool.
