I clicked on a link in an email from someone I knew.  Turns out it wasn't from that person.  Now when I go on google, the computer downloads.  I clear the download history.  I would like to know how to scan to see if I have contracted a computer virus, and clean it up.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    What does it download?


    If you have applied the latest security updates it is most unlikely that you have picked up any sort of malware that is affecting your computer.
