Folders connecting to the internet??

I keep receiving notices form Norton Firwall that different folders and files are trying to connect to the internet. These are files that normally would not connect to the internet and folders don't connect to the internet. I suspect I have a virus, or possibly a trojan horse? When I run Norton Antivirus, though, it says my hard drive is clean.

I am using an Intel iMac running Mac OS X 10.7.5 with Norton Internet Security. I ran Live Update before scanning my hard drive to make sure I had the latest virus definitions.

Has anyone else had a similar experience? It is annoying to have to keep clicking on  the "Block" button every time a notice pops up.

Re: Folders connecting to the internet??

Hi ptrivilino, and welcome. I'm not familiar with Apple functions, so I'll leave others to maybe advise you on this. However, if you suspect you have malware on your iMac, try one of the following malware removal forums, and stick with the one expert.

Wait for a short while, in case someone else can help you, before you try these forums.
