I've got this MacBook that I think has picked up virus' on the pc side... the performance is still pretty good, but some sites aren't loading. When I use the pc side of this mac it's telling me that there are viruses.
What are my options on this nice machine???

Windows viruses won't affect your OS X install. What sites aren't loading? Is it always the same ones?

Easiest way if you really have a virus is to delete the VM and start over. Did you by chance follow Fusion's recommendation to make a backup of the VM after you created it? If you did, just restore the backup over the current VM and you'll be back in business.

BTW, don't forget to use AV software and stay away from the nasty sites.

Regards.

the nasty sites is what I suspect on the machine. I've got kids!! It does suggest adult sites... I'll have to get with the IT guy that set this machine up to start over. Hopefully he made/or has the back up.
