    Trojan, Malware Or Not? Mail Shows Empty Window

    Hi Cheryl, I didn't think you could actually isolate single files when migrating from Time Machine or CarbonCopyCloner which is use a lot when migratng back. And I actually cannot find the two files despite trying for an hour. The path shows fairly clearly in Macafee but not 100%.. you cannot...

    Trojan, Malware Or Not? Mail Shows Empty Window

    Thanks for the reply. The iMac has Macafee on it and despite finding two very small mail files that were deleted nothing else shows as a problem. I am reluctant to back up, erase and re-install as in my opinion the back up would just bring back ant problem files would it not?

    Question Re: The Mighty Mouse Scroll Feature

    This is a common fault with the scroll wheel of these mice. The wheel inside is controlled by four magets and another scroll wheel. These clock up with dirt just like the PC mice do. BUT.. unless you break the seal and take it apart yuo cannot clean it perfectly. Try wetting a cotton bud...

    Your Hard drive cannot be 1.2GB it must surely be bigger. If yuo click once on the Hd and choose command (apple), and press 'i' it will tell you the HD capacity and whats left. If it is reading 1.2Gb as FREE it must be nearly full so you mare in danger of it causing problems. You can upgrade...

    Mac Book startup disk won't boot, HD appears fine

    jbarley.. it seems you are 100% CORRECT. I re-partitioned my MacBook 15in last night and via target mode on another MacBook installed Snow to a complete clean Hard Drive. My DVD is not reading Install Discs hence the TM option but I now have Snow running without the need for a pre-installed Leopard.
