Windows On Mac :: Is This Virus Protection Actually A Virus?

Dec 1, 2010

My girlfriend downloaded a bunch of programs and I noticed her Windows installation was a lot slower than when it was fresh. She has an antivirus program called "Uniblue RegistryBooster" and I was wondering if that was a reputable antivirus program or something malicious.

MacBook :: Do I Actually Have A Virus?

May 27, 2009

I recently got a Macbook. I love it so far, I've had it for less than a week. I had been using it at my mom's (she uses on of those Timemachine things. They double as a wireless router right?)Anyways that was working great. Now I'm at my dad's where the computers (PCs) have had histories of viruses, worms, and other bad stuff; this is mainly cause my dad and step family are idiots about downloads and aren't very responsible.

Anyways, I was just browsing the internet today - no weird sites that would be fairly dangerous - and a message popped up saying that I could be infected! I was feeling safe just the other day learning that Macs are very safe from computer viruses and stuff. A windows message popped up to notify me (which is really strange because I had only installed Windows office on this Macbook). But I'm thinking that its a fake message and instead some sort of trojan horse. Could it have come through the wireless network to reach this Mac? I dunno what happened, but I'm scared because this Mac is new and I would really like it to not screw up.

But if it does, I got this Mac through my university, so I have support and a warranty, so I could get this replaced if it got really bad right?

MacBook Pro :: How To Know If It Has A Virus Or Not

Jun 17, 2012

When I checked my inbox yesterday morning I had several mailer daemon failure notiices. It appeared that during the night my email system had sent out an email to addressess in my address book that I had not used in a long time, a few of which were no longer active emil accounts hence the failure notice. The emil that was sent apears to people as being sent by me and is directing people to a web site. I immediatley updated with the latest apple updates & there were a few old ones that I had missed.  Does this mean my computer has a vius? Or has it been hijacked in some way? Also has the time now come to install some form of third party anti-virus/spyware software?

MacBook Pro :: How To Get Rid Of A Virus

Sep 4, 2014

I know most people say Macs don't get viruses..but earlier I received a notification on twitter that I had a new follower.I clicked on the persons name and it brought me to a new page. It wasn't her twitter profile, but one of those scam-looking- type pages. I didn't even read it, I just ex-ed it out.   

In the past, sometimes things pop up, I ex out, and thats the end of it. Every time I try to open a new tab, new window or click into something (like pressing "submit", or "next", or a name on Facebook), one or two other tabs open, obviously those fake/annoying pop up sites, come up.

On my preference settings on safari, it is NOT clicked to go to the new window/tab when opened, and I have "block pop-up windows" selected. (All of the options are selected on the security tab) 

I haven't recently changed any settings and this extreme amount of pop ups with every click just started happening after the twitter page thing. Should I avoid putting any personal information into my computer (Ex: checking bank account) until the pop ups stop?I don't think its happening when I try using chrome… Could it just be a safari thing?

MacBook Pro :: Virus Protection On A MBP?

Jul 6, 2009

i got my macbook pro a few days ago and i'm enjoying it. the only concern i have is that it might get a virus and and i don't want to put 1.5k of US dollars to waste just like that. i always thought a mac could never get a virus so thats why i bought it but i read that there is a chance that getting a virus might happen. so i am wonder should i pay for a virus protection or does it already come with a virus protector and i don't have to worry?

MacBook :: Pro Shuts Down On Its Own / Why Is This?

Dec 9, 2009

I'm considering buying a used MacBook Pro (early 2008) from a seller on eBay. The seller disclosed "Sometimes the machine shuts down after startup" but adds that he does not know why.

Does this sound like something anyone has encountered and if so, was it serious?

MacBook Pro :: It Shuts Down At 10%

Apr 10, 2012

My computer started to shut itself down without warning at around 10% battery power when my battery was bad. I bought a new battery, which works fine, but the problem persists. The computer does never tell me that battery is low or anything; it simply shuts down at 10% without warning and I can't seem to be able to do anything about it.

Info:Mac Pro

Feb 8, 2012

how do i know if my pc is infected by a backdoor virus? there was a window, which said that i won something. the only button was the "ok" button, to go on..there was no red X on the upper side left and i could not even close safari. so i said "ok" and then I couldnt use safari anymore, until i started the computer again(doing it usually didn´t workd, so i had to shut it down just holding the start button) i´m scared i could have a backdoor on my pc now. what can I do? or how do I know if my pc is infected or not?
