    Hey,
    After having one for ages, new folders started popping up, I have one in the upper level and one in applications. These where folders called SW, and just appeared one day. I tried deleting them, it asked for password, I left alone. Now I tried to delete them, thinking I could just restore from backup. After that I lost connection to my TimeMachine server thing, and te Internet on some software. It wouldn't let me delete it though, it told me incorrect password. What if it's just got ally passwords? Could this be a spyware? Now I can't even boot, it hangs on the lovely apple icon and swirling loading icon :(
    Any ideas, I can't go 3 hours without my laptop, and now it won't turn on! :(
    Thanks
    Joseph Duffy
