    Well, after rummaging through my attic, I found my dad's old Mac SE. It still turns on and stuff, but it it still being affected by a virus that he said had infected it. I have no clue what the virus would be, but here is what it does:

    1. It deletes files.
    2. It creates new files name "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" or "hhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" etc.

    Is there a way to fix this? Or something still online that could possibly give more information.

    This should be a good memory test for you all :D

    If you don't care about the files on it (which I assume you don't if its been in an attic for 20 years) then just find the system install disks, reformat the drive, and reinstall the OS.

    That's how good Macs are.

    Even after 20 years a virus still works!!!

    Maybe you can get an old verison of Norton AntiVirus, and install it on an old SCSI HD..?
