Stupidly, I clicked on a link from an acquaintance's email. What the heck?!!?? I never click on links from friends' email anymore. They're all spam and viruses. And this person is on vacation. Why the fudge would he email me??!!!!??? Sigh....just venting....sorry. No anti-virus program on this laptop, so I'm hoping for the best.

Get a small one, like Malwarebytes, and clean that baby.







Or you could send it to me to clean, just don't remove any of the naked pictures of you and your girlfriends.

Hmm....it's a macbook air. What kind of anti-virus program do I install on that? As for the ehem pictures, I can just send you a cd of them. No need to send my laptop.

I would try Malwarebytes, but somebody familiar wit Macs may have a better idea.

Sure a CD would work, how about a dozen copies, I'll make a fortune.

Google the Mac antivirus software called "ClamXav"

It used to be free, but after today (7/31/15) it will be ~$30.
Today, it is $22.46... with a 30 free trial

It has an excellent reputation, is easy to install, and once installed it
monitors whatever drives or folders, including your emails
... whatever you wish.

ClamXav automatically gets daily updates of new viruses,
and actually runs in background without you having to do much of anything.
But then you can scan specific files, and either delete or quarantine any infected files.
So it's very low maintenance.

And it passes no judgement on ehem pictures

Hehehe.....Do you use that program, Lamplighter?

What I'm hesitating on is that I need to bring my laptop up to the store to get it fixed or looked at. Long story short, when I first got my laptop, I did something and a large chunk of the hd was partitioned off and now unusable. I've been too lazy to bring it up for the Apple people to fix it for me. Calling for an appt has been time consuming and unfruitful. I'm afraid that they may have to redo my system. If everything gets wiped out, will they put back the program for me for free?

Yes, I have used it for several years.
It has detected a couple of infections in emails I received from people who roam the internet.
When this happens, it has a hand-holding routine that takes you thru acceptance of the email (NO !)
...or deleting the email, or keeping it in quarantine.
I rely on it completely, and have no other anti-virus program.

I believe your concerns about re-installing the ClamXav are negligible.
I would not hesitate to install it now, then have your Mac "repaired",
and then see if you even need to re-install.
It would be like any other application on your computer.
Even so, I believe you can re-install it at no additional cost.
(They say "any computer you own" )

Ugh! I missed this post. Was going to be a personal gift, but now, NO MORE FOR YOU.

Aw shucks.
Thanks Lamp, I was hoping someone with Mac smarts would know for sure.
