Hello,

Every time I log on to the internet with my Yahoo browser, I get a pop up window that warms me that I may have a virus. The window offers to do a scan to check for viruses. But can an Apple product even have a virus. What do I need to do? Can I get rid of the window? If so, how?

Thanks

William Harrelson

Hello William,

A Mac with a virus! I sort of doubt it! But you say that the message occurs only when you connect to Internet. I have not been on a Mac for a long time but I suggest that the problem may be lodged in your Safari. Somewhere, somehow, a "SOB" is trying to get to Macs with the same Trojan virus which infecting Windows to get them to buy a fake Security Tool.

I suggest you look into your Safari and investigate the sites you visit.

Best regards
