Hi I am one of the experts here on Just Answer.com
Could you tell me what OS you have on your Mac Book as well as what virus protection you have on the mac book
Omer, I bought the mac Book for my wife in May. I'm a PC person, but the message about the virus is a windows alert. I can't download the remedy.
I had surgery Friday and I can't find the paper work that came with the computer.
The virus alert did it come up on the MacBook?
Do you have the mac book in front of you
Did the virus alert come up in a web page?
yes, I'm using it
Ok click on the apple in the top left corner and select about this mac
it should tell you the version
Mac OS X
should say a number like 10.4. something or 10.5. something or 10.6. something
Ok now the virus alert may have simply been a bogus pop up that tried to install something on your machine, as it happens on the PC side of things
however one thing you can try is installing http://macscan.securemac.com/ once installed updated it
and then let it scan your mac for viruses this will give you a better and safe result of if you actually have anything on your machine
I've seen these on my pc, but this was hard to get off the Mac. Need I worry about this?
To be safer than sorry I would download macscan in the link above and run it on the mac book
but again please run the update in macscan to get the latest definitions after its installed before you scan
are you going to stay with me?
yep I will be here
Do I need to purchase this or is there a free download?
If you click download there is a free trial
Are you there?
Yeah I am here
Click download in the top menu
then on the download screen one of the options is download free trial
you want to use that
