Hi guys,

I may be infected here and in a more serious way than I originally thought. I run a Mac with boot camped XP on one partition. Just a couple of weeks ago I had to rip off the XP partition and do a complete reformat/reinstall. The first program I installed on my XP partition after the reformat was Kaspersky.

Today I went through the Mac partition to do some maintenance before I used the system, and did a scan with symantec. It detected some malware (of which kind it didn't specify) in one of the "archives." I managed to get Symantec to delete the archive... but this isn't my first rodeo with malware. I know on windows machines is can hide in all kinds of places like the "restore" function. What is new for me is having malware on my Mac. It looks like it's gone but I would like to be sure.

Simply put is there any way I can run something like Hijack This on the mac? If so I will probably be doing it for both partitions just to make sure both sides are clean of malware/keyloggers.
