    So I recently got a trojan horse on my Windows computer via my email address I use both for my Windows and Mac computer. So assuming that I check email on both computers I probably have it on my Mac as well.

    I was just wondering what software you guys suggest using for a PC and a Mac for removing trojan horses. I know that trojan horses can't technically be removed, but I am desperate and I do not want my Mac or PC to be screwed up.

    Thanks

    I doubt there's a trojan horse in your OSX.Sorry to hear about your Windows problem though.

    I'd suggest using AVG free anti-virus on Windows and not forwarding the e-mail attachment from Mac OS X.

    Just to confirm; the trojan horse won't affect OSX at all. :)
