After reading some posts about Opener Malware I decided to start up 
Terminal to check to see if I had it. Upon opening all I get is a very 
small window just big enough for the red "close window" button to 
appear. No matter what I try I can't get anything other than that tiny 
window. Anyone have any ideas what I can do?
