    I have a MacBook Pro- 2011. I recently started having problems when using sites like eBay and other shopping sites. I have been looking for art pieces on-line and when I click on one, the page advances to the product description. When I then click the back arrow to return to the list of items and pick a new item to view, the page will advance, the new item will briefly appear and then it will revert to the prior item. This is sporadic, but driving me crazy.

    I can sometimes solve the problem by closing the website and trying again, but not often. It is enough of a problem that I am joining this website to find a solution!

    Could I possibly have a virus? How would I check?

    Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released over 10 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided by practicing safe computing (see below).

    3rd party antivirus apps are not necessary to keep a Mac malware-free, as long as a user practices safe computing, as described in the following link. Read the What security steps should I take? section of the Mac Virus/Malware FAQ for tips on practicing safe computing.
