My backup hard drive failed-- it had some file system corruption; when I asked the repair guy about my laptop then crashing when I tried to run Carbon Copy Cloner (to create a backup on a new HD to replace the possibly lost one), he suspected malware and recommended Malwarebytes. My big trouble is that, for the moment at least, I'm holding on to a very old OS (10.6.8) and even downloading the installer for Malwarebytes failed; I got it to install on a MacBook Air running something a bit later (10.11 or 12), but didn't see any way to scan anything but its local drive. My question is: is there any hope for me? Any way to find an old Malwarebytes compatible with 10.6.8 but run it with new malware database? Or any way to scan the laptop with Malwarebytes on the MacBook Air using file sharing? Or to scan it from another Mac that has Firewire, using target disk mode, or any advice?
