I am new here, and to macs. My mother has a mac running operating system 9.2, and it has some strange virus.
Is there a free virus scanner available for download for this operating system?
Thanks in advance!

Disinfectant is a freeware anti-virus only program. It has not been updated for years. It checks only for viruses and does not check for trojans, worms etc but it might help you out. It's at: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macos/1252

The only major virus that Disinfectant doesn't cover is the AutoStart worm. You can find instructions on how to check for it below.
I'm surprised that you suspect a virus, simply because most of the old Mac viruses died out long ago. They're just not "in the wild" anymore...most of the vulnerable systems were junked a long time ago, and modern OS X Macs aren't susceptible to the old viruses. Let me know what you find, I'm curious.
