I'm working on a Mac computer that has become infected with various rouge AV trojans (MacProtector, for one). Sophos did a good job of cleaning up the computer, but it cant clean the backups created by Time Machine. I've tried to manually delete them, but I get an error saying Time Machine backups cant be modified. How do I get those infected backups cleaned?
