    this is really weird but I got a virus or something on my external drive (which I'm using on my mac now) from a PC and can't remove it now. The file is called g.exe. First, I hope it's not able to do anything on my mac, is it? Second, the file is locked and I can't delete it. What can I do?

    Thanks for your help!

    I'd just format the entire drive using Disk Utility. Keep in mind that any other data on the drive is going to be destroyed as well.

    1. It's not a virus.
    2. It can't even be RUN in OS X.
    3. Unlock the file or Force-Empty the Trash.

    It's not a virus or a trojan? I googled it and that was what I got as info.

    Anyway, how do I unlock a file?
