I did a scan with dr.web and all lots of malware appeared. My family use this computer so i don't know who may have caused this but this mac has been very slow of late. I will try to attach an image but if anyone can help i would be very grateful.

If it was me, I'd just move all those files to the "Quarantine" location (which may be a folder).

Then I'd delete them all.

Then, I'd run the scan again and see what it finds.

Repeat until it doesn't find anything.

I'll give that a go. The scan has been running for 30 hours and is coming to an end.

PWS.Panda and Adware.Spigot are both Windows malware. They can't run on OSX and wouldn't be responsible for slowing it down. Still, it'd be a good idea to quarantine the files and get rid of them anyway.

Thanks. Are they particularly bad? I share a hdd with a Windows machine.
