    No, you don't have a virus, and you (seriously) don't need to worry about viruses on your Mac. So no worries there!

    The problem you're seeing is usually a software problem and isn't too difficult to fix, provided you know the exact issue. Unfortunately, this could be occurring for several reasons -- all of which are easy to fix, but difficult to determine why.

    If I were you, I'd find the discs that came with your computer, and do what's called an "Archive and Install". This will re-install the files needed for your Mac to work, but it will keep all of your files safe and untouched. There's instructions on how to do it on Apple's website.

    By the way, your other option is to call Apple. They're really, really helpful!
