Hello Richard, and welcome to Justanswer.com.

Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Thank you,

Dustin S.

Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

Ok, lets try this together. Go to this specific page

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=253769&infoType=Downloads&platform=OSF_M_X6

Switch your OS to 10.6. download the specific 02/20/15 97.2 MB epson16360.dmg file ..

Once downloaded, attempt to open your downloads folder and then doubleclick the epson16360.dmg file.

Will it let you install it now?

Question.

You received an email saying there are two " Bots" on viruses on your computer?

Be careful that your not falling victim to a phishing scam. What exactly did the email say?

And what was the exact email address it came from? ( youre welcome to copy and paste the text into the reply box here, if you want)
