    Ok, I admit the title is a little overstated but; I was preparing to backup some files to get ready for Leopard so I moved my GarageBand folder over to my windows pc (which is shoved into the closet and used as extra disk space for this very purpose). And bazoom my antivirus software go nuts (nod32 if any windows user recognize it) and notice a high priority virus inside a few .aif apple loops I've created for a project recently.

    Now I'm thinking, what the hell? how did they get in there? the files are taken directly from my mac and the files were created from recording audio in GarageBand. Makes you think if there's more of those buggers cluttering my sweet little Mac.

    Ofcourse it was harmless for the mac but still...

    The antivirus software doesn't recognize the Mac file structure. I highly doubt there is anything wrong with your Mac files. Windows is retarded and doesn't speak any other language except retard.
