    Its very unlikely you got a trojan, theres only one active one around for Macs at the moment, compared to the thousands for Windows, and if you did get the one going around it was because you were illegaly downloading the iWork 09 software suite.

    Perhaps start by telling us what your problem is and we'll find the solution for you, not everything that goes wrong is a trojan.

    uuuhh thats not a trojan :rolleyes:

    its clearly just a computer that was found on your computer by either bonjour or another file sharing service (FTP or something similar to that).

    do you know what a trojan is?? its a virus that infects your computer and tries to steal bank details, email passwords etc...

    From Wiki:

    Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, describes a class of computer threats (malware) that appears to perform a desirable function but in fact performs undisclosed malicious functions that allow unauthorized access to the host machine.

    For example, if a computer game is designed such that, when executed by the user, it opens a back door that allows a hacker to control the computer of the user, then the computer game is said to be a Trojan horse.

    However, if the computer game is legitimate, but was infected by a virus, then it is not a Trojan horse, regardless of what the virus may do when the game is executed. The term is derived from the classical story of the Trojan Horse.

    Thats not a trojan. Simply another PC on your LAN.

    That's a possibility, though I know some ISPs (my parents' SuddenLink cable, to name one) have your entire neighborhood as part of the same subnet, with no filtering, so that sidebar will show the computers of anyone within some distance of your house who's not hiding behind a router or firewall. Were that the OP's case I'd expect to see more than one, though.

    Weirded me out the first time I saw it; "Hey, mom, who's Bob and why can you see his iMac from here?"
