    The likelihood is that it is completely free of Viri, Trojans and Spyware. There really isn't that much that affects Macs at this time.

    However you can download ClamXAV from the App store for free and scan your computer.

    I would get rid of Avast (which can create problems on a Mac, especially with Internet access) and install ClamXav.

    Avast should be properly uninstalled (see required procedure).
