Heath - i have a CD from Bruce Forat with the factory patterns on it.

It is an audio CD, however, I can easily extract the track using Peak. Do you prefer an .aif or .wav file?

there are a host of trojan horses and a few nasty virii for mac OS X as of three years ago

if you find your mac to be infected, the first place to check would be the "java applet" folder in the appropriate user directory you are working in

this would usually be at the admin level / root directory
