Avast for MAC found something?
« on: August 25, 2012, 10:44:48 AM »
Hey guys and gals just have a quick question,

I just got a new MacBook Pro and Avast was the first thing i  to protect it ;), Anyways the question I want to ask is this, I ran a whole computer scan and it came up with nothing but one warning, An "Error 42110 The file is a decompression bomb?", This is named "bootroot.loader.dmg .

What should i do in regards to this file? Avast wont let me delete it but if i go into the folder I can delete it but should I as it seems to a system file?

Anyways any help with this in any regards would be lovely.

Cheers
