Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
Be informed, don’t let Trojans reign supreme!
In this era of technology it is critical on the kind of anti-virus software you use to run your machine. Technology has literally turn the world around and some of the computer threats that were deadly a few years ago have been eradicated. Continuous download and research on the internet comes with threats that might not be known to the user. This is one of the reasons why all OS should have an anti-virus system that works. How to go about this will be through doing a thorough search and identifying what works better for your system, be it a Mac of windows.
With competition being rife, only those who effectively meet their customers need can stay afloat. It is imperative to know how to install a software program and if need be able to uninstall it with less effort. All computers always recognise when a new program is about to be installed and will prompt you on how to go about it. If one is sure that this will work for your OS, then it will be proper to read the instructions carefully before clicking here and there. The good thing with computer installation is that they just don’t install, they give you a chance to decline or accept.
The next advantage that comes with such installation is that you can conveniently uninstall them when they do not work out. Upon installation of most of these programs they will ask you to re-boot your machine. By this it gives it a chance to have the program installed and start running into the system effectively. But for continuous upgrading for newer versions of any anti-virus software, a user has to be connected on the internet. This helps keep the new viruses at bay as they are produced everyday and are the greatest threat to any OS user.
Whether they are trojans or malware, do not give them a chance to reign supreme. Most of the onscreen instructions that come with these software programs on how to install the programs are usually very handy for anybody who can use a computer. Upon purchase of an anti-virus program it is usually comes with the required tools and are either comes in a diskette, DVD or CD. Running a computer without an anti-virus in this age of internet use makes one vulnerable to all kinds or threats from within and without. You cannot escape it, however hard you try to keep off.
Most of the operating systems do not come with in-built anti-virus systems; it is only Mac OS that have managed to put security in their programs. But even with these, it is still not enough and users are encouraged to install an efficient software program just incase one fails, so as not be vulnerable. It is better to understand how to go about this. It can be either by downloading the free ones like Avast or go for the commercially sold products which offer better protection for computer users. Extra anti-virus protection is a must have for Mac OS users.
