Hi Barry
I’m sorry to Paul rain on your parade but I think that is highly unlikely  and extremely suspicious. Trial mode antivirus software generally does report suspicious activity if only to get you to pay for it so I’d like to know exactly what viruses it found, also when an antivirus program reports suspicious items it generally doesn’t just mean viruses, it could mean tracking cookies as well which is something that although irritating certainly wouldn’t count as a virus. Viruses on the Mac are very few and far between, so yes like Andrew I would be very interested to hear what happened there.

So I bought a years licence for £34 with a 30% discount  Check it out here, https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.intego.com&data=02%7C01%7C%7C11076d3b1ac742c7d27e08d75219bc51%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637068142794592812&sdata=jplXJmFL51WgJpNzqCLrBhVY%2FvZfXT5feUKYpo3S9Zk%3D&reserved=0
