Hi, thanks for using I am Cris and will be glad to assist you.

I use ClamXav for virus removal on Mac's. Did you use it and not find anything on your Mac?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Correct, I di not find anything, I'm not sure if ClamXav is a malware tool or just searches for viruses?

Is my session over?
Expert:  Cris replied 10 months ago.

It does search for both but it is somewhat basic. Anything free will be basic, I highly recommend purchasing and installing Eset Nod 32. It is the best antivirus software which also searches for malware and it a real-time protection. It ranks first in detection and removal rate against all anti virus software on the market.

Let me know if you have any further questions I will be glad to answer them. Please take the time to rate my service and submit at the top.
