    Hello Fiel,


    Could you tell us which F-Secure you are currently using? Also is there any known reason why your iMac would have old virus definition?

    The .exe file is only for Windows computers.


    This file is for off-line updating of F-Secure antivirus on Uni*x-derived operating systems:



    Whether Mac OS X is Un*x enough to run it, is anybody's guess? Apple computers are expensive, I have never used one, so can't tell myself.
