    Anti virus actions

    I have a MacBook pro and use AVG ANTIVIRUS. The antivirus keeps finding two types of malware: Wells Fargo and PS/phish. It removes them temporarily, but they do come back. I do not know where they come from.

    Read article that said to reboot Mac to safe mode and then run the AVG antivirus. Only problem is the I can't get AVG to run in safe mode.

    Is this a lost cause?

    Wells Fargo is a major bank, so that one may be connected to any banking software you have installed.
    True nobility lies not in being superior to another person, but in being superior to our previous selves.

    Acturally I do no business whatsoever with Wells Fargo.
