I installed the Flashback removal tool for MAC OS 10.5.8. Does the Mac need to be restarted for the fix to take effect? Thank you.


Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    No. The update will delete it and you won't have to do it manually

    Still cannot connect to the Internet. I'm communicating to you via a PC. But I am running MacScan in the background. Is that a reason why I still cannot connect?

     

    Thank you

    MacScan won't prevent you from connecting to the internet. Neither does FlashBack. As long as you have the latest Spyware Definitions dated July 6, MacScan should tell you if you contracted the DNSChanger Trojan which will now prevent you from accessing the internet.
