    Problem:Freezing & find plugin-crossdomain.xml in trash>recovedFiles. When I freeze up, I am using Firefox. Everytime I use the computer it seems to freeze up & I find "plugin-crossdomain.xml" & "plugin-ads_sdk_config.xml" in the trash upon restart. The freeze is: the disk spinning. No keys work. No mouse. No Force Quit available. NADA. Some times screen goes all black. Also, my machine feels real hot after it is on a while, at the top left back of the screen. But this happen today AGAIN, when it was cool. It seems to happen a lot after I log out of my "MyFIT" account at Fashion Institute of Technology & then log into, thru Firefox. I have to force shut down, by holding button in for 10 sec, then restart, then shut down properly again, then restart again. AND Then it happens again! HELP! My mac keeps freezing. See below for sys info.
    This is the report that finally was on screen that I sent to Apple: (I never got this before with this particular problem) Please help. This sucks! is my email. What is going on?

    I'm having a similar issue!

    I always get "The system is unavailable so now you have been signed out of the messenger" error when I sign into MSN Messenger. So, I switched to Adium for the past few years. In an attempt to get MSN Messenger working again because of some old conversation logs I had, I deleted
    Microsoft Messenger User Cache.plist

    After launching Messenger again I had to set it up again. After I finally managed to sign in, my dock stopped working and I couldn't minimize my current pages. I could close them and force quit. I went into terminal and found a bunch of daemon things from MSN Messenger. I remember the last time I updated Office, my Mac started acting funky too.

    Anyway, I tried to shut down my computer after force quitting all applications and killing the daemons through Terminal. My wallpaper stayed on screen and the computer didn't shut down. So I hold power button until it shut down. I boot up and it seems fine...

    I go into trash and see in plugtmp-1 that there's 3 files


    I Googled those files and I think I might have a virus. The only thing I'm suspicious of is my ex sending me a .jpg of an email over Adium.

    What should I do? I'm using a G4 eMac running OS X 10.4.

    You don't have a virus. 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. You cannot infect your Mac simply by visiting a website, unzipping a file, opening an email attachment or joining a network. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which cannot infect your Mac unless you actively install them, and they can be easily avoided with some basic education, common sense and care in what software you install. Also, Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion have anti-malware protection built in, further reducing the need for 3rd party antivirus apps.

    Check the first 3 items on the list in the link below to make sure you have nothing launching at startup that you don't intend to launch.
