So when the OS detects an .exe file, the Mac OS crashes. Interesting that the anti-virus program isn’t smart enough to realize this. I use Sophos and sometimes .exe files have downloaded but it never froze the system. Thanks costa.bas
Do you use kaspersky anti-virus kav? There was another post reporting the same issue as yours and after uninstalling kav things got back to normal.
I have been using Sophos on my Mac and it has worked great. It has found a ton of viruses just surfing the web. Although I have to say that the most viruses I get are from using StumbleUpon. I wonder why they don’t scan the websites they catalog for viruses and then delist them?
