    Is my mac affected by virus? On my Safari, it sometimes shows -_-o on the top of the page. Is there anyone having the same problem?

    If so, anyone knows how to remove it?

    No, you do not have a virus.
    What this is? no clue. But it is not a virus.

    No.



    Does it do this on every page? Does it do it in Firefox? Have you tried deleting Safari's Plist?

    I'm starting to think that the above Q&A or a variant thereof should be stickied at the top of this forum.

    Perhaps we could even title the thread "Finding and removing viruses from your Mac" so as to entice newbies into clicking it before posting yet another "do I have a virus?" thread... :p

    You expect newbies, or older members, to actually read stickies?

    There ARE no viruses in the wild that affect Mac OS X.
    No antivirus software can detect a Mac virus, because no Mac viruses exist.
    There are trojans that exist, but these can be easily avoided if:
    • you are careful what applications you install
    • you are careful where you get applications
    • you never enter your administrative password without THINKING!
    You also may not be aware that this question, like many others, has already been discussed quite a bit (beat to death, actually!) Using MRoogle to search the forums before you post will frequently reveal threads related to your question that the standard forum search misses, and will help you avoid posting repetitive threads. Here are some of the dozens of threads on this topic, filled with opinions and recommendations:

    One thread that you may find particularly helpful is this one: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=7066120

    Umm... you could try re-installing safari? That might work. Or, you could go to the Safari menu and click "Reset Safari," but make sure not to delete your bookmarks if you want to keep them.

    You don't have any cascading style sheets (CSS) selected in Safari's Preferences?

    I don't think it installed anything in Safari. It appears to be an ActiveX-based exploit, so I'm pretty sure that most (if not all) of the payload is aimed at Windows/IE.
