I can only get this app to scan when something mounts. Im used to being able to right click and having a scan option being there. Is it possible to select a file and scan it individually?

Thanks.

One thing I would try is control click it and see if a Norton option appears. But honestly, the chances of a virus relevant to your Mac are rather slim

I'd say that is correct.

Yeah I'd agree with that as well, did control click work?
