There really is no reason to download a virus scanner onto a mac because there aren't any viruses designed for mac. Plus, macs have security built in to run in the background against threats.

Hi, When I download some file I get a msg at the upper left corner saying download completed (in green) and a blank screed named "download. How can I prevent from this screen from showing up? Thanks

This download window can not exactly be disabled. It is part of safari and shows up to show you your downloads. Problem with this is that a lot of the downloads on a mac disappear from this window as soon as they finish downloading. If you were to download a larger file you would notice that it shows the download while it is being downloaded.
That being said, there is a way to have this window close after a certain delay. SafariStand is an application that should be able to help you with this problem. It does some other things as well you might find interesting. Give it a try to fix your issue though.

Can't get rid of lsas blaster. tryed everything.

If you haven't tried MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool, I suggest you download it on another computer and follow the below guide or you may stay infected.

Once you download the file on another computer, rename the file to something like "anything.exe" with the quotation marks. Now, transfer the file to a usb flashdrive. Take the flashdrive and attach it to the infected computer. Click on "My Computer" and find the flash drive and open it. Double click the drive and then double click the renamed MalwareBytes file. Install the program, let it update and then run the program. Perform a quick scan only, it may take a while so be patient. Once it finishes the scan, click on show results, it will post a list of infections that it finds. Once it posts the results, delete everything it finds. Reboot the system. Two other programs I would install are Avast Anti-Virus which is a free anti-Virus program and Threatfire which is a free utility that actively scans incoming web pages for threats and malware. Below are the links to the download pages.

How do i download an mp3 free song on to my mac?

Go to any website that provides free mp3 downloads and follow their directions (either click to download or right click and "save as"). Depending on your taste in music will depend on what site you download from. My daughter likes
Google is your friend, so use it. Just be cautious when you type a query "FREE MP3" because every website that has this tag (FREE) will come up. Even though they may not even have anything you want or anything that is actually free, by using this tag they appear in search engines and attract people under false pretense.
I hope this helps and good luck!

I think I got a virus on my Mac

Hi kvarby,

You can check for both viruses and trojans by using ClamXav.

It is a free download that can be found here.

The download link is on the left hand side of the page. The current version is 1.1.1

Alternatively, you can use iAntiVirus. It is also a free download which can be found here.

It wouldn't hurt to install the other one after you have finished scanning with the first one.

If this doesn't solve your problem:

Are you running windows in any capacity on your mac?

What problems are you having and when are they occuring?
