    I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can give Symantec permission to read these files? Some of them are old IM conversations, but others I have no idea what they are. I ran a virus scan, and it skipped over quite a few things. I'd rather just be safe and have everything checked.

    Honestly, I wouldn't even give Symantec the time of day. It's a horribly bloated app that uses resources for no benefit. There are currently no viruses for Mac.

    I agree. Symantec for Mac has caused a lot of problems, with no tangible benefit.

    I had forgotten that there aren't any viruses for Mac. Alrighty then, I think my problem is solved. Thanks for your help!
