Hi everyone, i was always of the understanding that Macs were not as vunerable as window operating laptops etc. However on the weekend i ran some scan which said i had issues on my mac book pro. Is it possible to pick up virus and and spy wear and if so what software do you use to actually check and fix if there is any. Cheers
Hi to be honest i don't remember, it was one of those attached to a web site i was downloading a 3ga converter. The question really is do Mac's get problems or was this just bit of a furphy to leed you down an garden path to load stuff that actaully could be a problem. or is there really a package you can run to check if you have any really issues or problems

What Linc has told you is exactly correct. There is no way a web site can scan your hard drive over the internet. It's pretending to do so in order to trick you into downloading and probably purchasing something that best case you don't need and could perhaps even be harmful by harvesting privacy information from you and your hard drive.
