there is a nice way to test to see if infact the antivirus software is functioning, need not aplly to mac osX but i will try it out both on a friends and at skool. All you have to do is to copy this string,
X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*into a text file and save it as a .com file. then email it to yourself and see if you are working out alright. node32, macaffee detect the file upon saving, as for the rest i have not the slightest idea what happens and how far you have to go till it detects it. is it dose not work at all here is the site for more detailed instructions, but if you did it right you might want to consider a different anti-virus.
