hi there! 

 

first time writing a thread.  i stupidly installed freecorder.  it is reknown ... more like notorious for installing all kinds of garbage on windows.  they must have just come up with a dmg for mac - as applian's customer service still has no idea that there's a mac app.  it asked for admin access during install.  briefly afterwards, i realized that that was not normal for an app to do - so i started looking around & sure enough, it's filled with nasty stuff.  i have since deleted the app, but wondering what else it could have left on my computer.  also if there is a way to see what changes it made, or why it even needed access to my admin ...

 

i'd be grateful for any help.  still getting to know mac.

 

thanks,

adam
