    no, it says i have option of moving to a new folder, but i dont what do with the new folder, afaid to touch it...could that the reason the computer wont go sleep? the display does, but after checking all boxes in power saver, the mac pro itself tries to go to sleep, but starts a low whine for a few seconds, then appears to stop, only to repeat the click and the whining every few minutes....

    I suspect once it gets moved it can just be deleted. Since it looks like a javascript java applet, if you don't run it, you won't get hit by it.

    As for your other issue, I don't think that it has any relation to this trojan, but I don't know. The sounds are more like a bad or failing hard drive.

    EDIT: According to McAfee's Threat Center, this is a low threat.
