Protecting disks, files, and data from viruses Scan disks, folders, and files

If you never log on as root, performing scans while logged on as an administrator catches any viruses the computer might have acquired. If you log on as root, perform scans under the same logon. You can also restart from the CD and scan using Norton AntiVirus for Mac OS 8.1-9.x to avoid access problems and permissions errors.
