What to do with a virus?
« on: October 16, 2013, 07:28:53 PM »
Avast has detected 1 virus and 101 warnings; however I am unable to do anything with the virus.  What am I doing wrong here?

What is the virus detection, file name, location and malware name ?
Why won't it let you do anything, e.g. what errors are you getting ?

Essentially there is nothing to do with warnings as they aren't indicative of a virus infection.
Give a few common examples of these errors, file name location and warning ?

I think you should better ask in the Mac section of the forum:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=5.0

Cause we know nothing about Macs.
