"Cheat Engine" is one of the many viruses that are currently wreaking havoc on Mac OS X systems. It is essentially a clone of the popular Spyware Toolbar and infects Mac computers from various sources on the internet. The application will show a false security results screen, claiming that your system is protected and that a virus scan is currently being performed. When clicked, this will cause a series of damaging actions to be carried out on your Mac. Although Mac OS X is not vulnerable to these sorts of attacks on the surface, the fact is that they are quite easy to perform on a Mac without any actual malicious software installed. If you are unfortunate enough to have this virus on your system, there are simple steps you can take to get rid of it...
The main feature of Cheat Engine is that it will not let you double-click anything or launch any application. Instead, it will just execute a series of "spyware" scans on your Mac, falsely proclaiming that an unknown initial value has been detected. The main issue with this is that the Mac operating system actually supports the use of the double-click / launch method, meaning that if you simply click a window, it will be launched and will display a fake security result that prevents you from entering anything. The way to get rid of Cheat Engine is to remove the application and any associated files that it may have placed on your system - and to do that, you should first download & run a reliable anti-virus removal tool for Mac OS X. You should also make sure that you are not infected with any other infections that could cause problems for your Mac - if you suspect this could be the case, you should download a free scanner for your Mac to identify the files that it might have corrupted.
After that, you should use a "registry cleaner" to scan through your computer and fix any errors that might be inside the registry. This is achieved by loading up the tool, which will then fix any of the errors that are inside the registry database. Although Cheat Engine is not infectious, it is still advisable that you remove this software from your Mac immediately in order to prevent any further damage to your system.
