Anyone with knowledge of "Avast anti-virus Mac edition"? I downloaded it here so assumed it was OK. It has proved to be not what I want and it makes Mail open up. Why does it do that? I don't know, ask them.

It does not appear in my profile start up items but that idiotic software starts, and starts mail on a boot.

I tried using finder to move it from Applications into the trash, but it tells me it can't do that because it is open. It has no "X" to close it. I tried force quitting, but it opens again (and reopens mail if I closed it).

How do I kill it?

BTW, Avoid Avast at all costs.

who knows iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4), who knows
