    scannig w/ norton antivirus
    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

    ok but lets imagine this......if i dowload something that's infected with a PC virus, it'd not affect OS X Or any MAC system right?.....but...i'd still have an infected file that can infect a windows user that i send it to........ right?

    I'd say that is correct.

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