camroidv27: Two more glaring errors on your part. (1) "Because that's what Apple said." You are making things up. Where do you read on Apple's site that 'clicking okay can't harm you'???? (2) "What I don't get, is why people are downloading an AV program for an OS that touts it not needing one." People are NOT downloading this Trojan. It downloads itself by Javascript.

bitWrangler: It sure as heck is a Trojan. The simple meaning of Trojan (just like the old Greek story) is "something very bad that is disguised as something good". camroidv27: No one I know of has ever said "there is no malware written for their computers".

A freshly formatted drive is not the same as "directly over Tiger". It is directly over nothing.
I have made changes to a copy of the Dock (and I have a backup copy of the original as well). I want to replace the original Dock with my altered one. I use Terminal to "killall Dock" which returns nothing, which I assume means it killed the Dock process. I drag the revised Dock to the CoreServices. I get a dialog "cannot be modified" with two buttons: Authenticate and Cancel. I click Authenticate, the dialog window disappears, but nothing else happens. The original Dock...
