    If you can believe that - wrldwzrd89, the ever-helper, needs help...

    I ran a Virex scan today, and it said one file was possibly infected. I don't want to manually look through the results for relevant messages - any ideas as to what I should search for using TextEdit to find the offending file?

    EDIT: After doing some poking around, I found the infected file in my Mailbox cache. Someone had sent me a Windows virus. It's gone now and can't harm anyone.

    I did a Virex scan a while back when that mp3 "virus" was being spoken of (not sure why since I don't download music 'cept from iTunes). Had 3 files tagged but they were all java viruses that... although cross platform they were Windows only... it was in my cache for Safari I guess...
