I have a few websites one of which was discovered with a virus. The problem may originate from the server/host which I am willing to change. I also found 4 malware/trojans on my personal mac using Sophos but this program says that the viruses need to be "manually cleaned" which I think is simply finding the file path and trashing the file. I think Sophos even gives the file or path.

I am not computer literate enough to be willing to learn all these issues when someone like you can just help me through.

I would like help and suggestions regarding all these issues. So here are my needs:

Scan my server files for all malware by someone competent in removal.

Assist directly in cleaning the issues with my personal mac using "LogMeIn" or equivalent.

Suggest or implement security measures to protect my personal computer

Suggest or implement security measures to protect the existing or new server.

Perhaps walk me through a streamlining of my mac to speed it up as well. Do I need to upgrade from OSX 10.5.8 or something else?

I also have a username/password issue as I recently had to go into the computer setup files and implement a new password. Now, even though I know the password, the computer constantly (multiple times per hour) requests the un and pw at every turn. Very tiring. I continually hit "cancel" and it lets me continue.

I need someone who speaks fluent English and who is familiar with security, viruses and mac computers. This is not a learn as you go project although I understand that there will be some time spent and some investigation. Experienced only please. The job will be hourly based on your posted hourly rate.

Thanks, Mike

Skills: logmein, english
