    Around an hour before posting this, i heard a song that is on my iTunes playing, but i did not have iTunes on, and never opened it. After digging around to see if there was a file open that was playing the song, i found something called ProteMac Daemon in my CPU Activity Monitor. It says it is root, but when i googled it, i came to find out that it is a file, and noticed ProteMac is also a keylogger.

    I play a lot of games and do a lot of things on the internet on this mac, and am scared someone may have put this file on my mac to do things to it.

    If anyone can help, it will be greatly appreciated. -Justin

    Tried this uninstall method with the term "protemac" yet?
