This said to be a virus which affects- infects - windoze systems... can apparently only get to Mac via windows derived files?

Seems it gets onto Macs usually from files derived on windowze systems...

Have a read of the following to see f they help resolve it:

https://discussions.apple.com/threa...

https://communities.vmware.com/thre...

Also run a decent anti-virus app as well; after trying teh above?

Bitdefender is fine and many here recommend it for windoze and mMac systems. There is free version - you update it yourself; and there is the paid for version. I find the free one all I need.

There's also this link - which has how to deal with it for windoze and mac; worth a read at least...

However they are clearly into flogging you a software clever all in one app as well; and I would avoid any "I can monitor your computer and fix everything under the sun it "allegedly" finds software". more often than not they cause more problems than they allegedly find/fix.
