removing the "fraud.sysguard" virus from my mac
Any mac experts around? I normally use Clam Zav as a virus checker for my mac. However, it hasn't been able to remove one particular one called "fraud.sysguard".
Background info: I "contracted" this virus after visiting another internet forum that I frequently participate in. One of the mods on that site noticed a similar problem in that they randomly have screens pop up that go to random websites. They noticed the problem around the same time that I did. They were able to use spybot to identify and remove the virus which is how I was able to come up with a name for the stupid thing.
Take your case off and apply 99% rubbing alcohol generously on the harddrive to disinfect it from nasty viruses. Then wash off with plenty of water. Make sure to dump a bunch into all the electrical hardware. Shake gently so all the liquids gets to all the nooks and crannies. Put case back on and boot up. You'll know you are virus free when smokes comes out of the computer.
