Other than .Mac... Does anyone recommend a good anti-virus program that is compatible with 10.4.1?
I recommentd only Intego and only if you want to protect some specific Window users or as many Windows users as you can. I am an OS X and a Windows user. Wearing my Windows cap, my opinion is that I should be responsible for taking care of myself. So, please don't run AV protection for my benefit. Unless something has changed in the last 2 weeks, .Mac is not offering AV protection.Sirtovin said:Other than .Mac... Does anyone recommend a good anti-virus program that is compatible with 10.4.1?
This is called "virofobia", a very widespread form of paranoia. You have an irrational fear of computer viri. Fobic fears are very common, and include fears of heights (vertigo), closed spaces (claustrofobia), spiders (arachnofobia), etc. Please consult a doctor or psychiatrist, he will know what to do.I am still worried about the Apple possibly having a virus even though that's a REMOTE possiblity.
No argument, but no antivirus software on the Mac will be able to detect a Mac virus until one has been found and the virus signature have been updated to detect it. In other words no antivirus software will help those who catch the first virus early.Sirtovin said:Well I don't think I have any virus's... I've checked both my IBM's Pieces of crap that are attached to my network and my Apple Laptop... but I am still worried about the Apple possibly having a virus even though that's a REMOTE possiblity.

Isn't it better to be safe than sorry? prevention is better than cure idea?
I really don't understand how Macs can't get viruses.. I'm a newbie to all this, so please don't laugh (lol).
