    I know that I can't expect my Activity Monitor processes to look the same as everyone's or even anyone's. Obviously it depends on what you have installed and what you have running. But I'd really appreciate it if anyone reading this could post the processes in their Activity Monitor so I can compare and contrast it to how mine look.

    Do you suspect anything going haywire?

    Have you selected to SHOW ALL PROCESSES and sorted by CPU?

    Maybe you can start by posting a screenshot of your Activity Monitor...

    Or you can copy them in here by using CMD+A and CMD+C.

    Why don't you answer this question first?

    I'm sorry I didn't answer the question. It's not so much that I suspect as it is I want to make sure that there's nothing bad going on. I'm a former windows user so I'm sure you know what it is that I'm afraid of. I don't illegally download or do other shady things so I'm pretty sure I'm good on the trojan front. Now I'd just like to make sure that my computer hasn't been hacked. I heard that Activity Monitor was one way you could tell.

    Seriously. Comparing processes isn't going to tell the OP anything. Everyone has different crap that they run.

    Is anything taking a large percent of your CPU? That doesn't mean it's a Trojan or anything like that. You may just have to delete a plist file.

    Well I'm not really noticing a slowdown that I can tell. Sometimes I may be browsing the net and if I click on a page it make take a little bit to load. I can't fully explain it but say I click a link to go to another page. It may not go to that page right away but it will in a few seconds (I'm on DSL btw). This may not always be for one page though. I may have multiple tabs open and that thing may happen on all pages. It doesn't happen all the time. Honestly maybe it happened once yesterday, twice most. Sometimes I may have to click a link twice to get it to load. I'm not too worried about it, but is that anything to be concerned about come to think of it?

    In general I'm worried about what's listed as far as the processes go and how I would know if my computer had been hacked. Are the processes I posted ok, and what would be the signs if my computer had been hacked?

    You have iAntiVirus running, which is not necessary due to the lack of published and spreading Mac OS X viruses.
    This application scans for Windows viruses, which due to their nature being programmed for Windows, can't do anything with Mac OS X. The "slow down" can be brought back to this, or your ISP has a slow DNS.

    Yes, you're right. I was confusing it with ClamXAV.

    http://www.iantivirus.com/

    But it still might slow down the experience though.
    And malware has to be manually installed anyway, unless it might piggyback on illegally downloaded software, which might be not the case though, as some article I can't find right now (Safari's history search is a joke) explained in more detail.

    Please help re detecting spyware

    Hi, can someone tell me if there's anything suspicious in my activity monitor? I suspect a nasty ex roommate may have installed a keylogger or spyware ony desktop. Could this be done if she didn't have my password? I've seen the word keylogger jotted down on a note so that's what's made me suspect. And after she was in my flat my computer has mysteriously been restated. Help please? Thanks.
