Hi,
I am new to the mac world, because I am a Windows user, but have the opportunity to set up and use an iBookG4. I want to know, however, what you thought the best free antispyware program is. I know for Windows, there are four of them that must be used simultaneously (Adaware SE, Spybot, MS Antispyware, Spyware Blaster), so if there is more than one program I must use, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

You won't need any adware/spyware protection for you Mac. There isn't any adware or spyware to worry about. :black:

The best AntiSpyware tool that comes free with every new mac is OS X.

No Spyware. No Viruses. With included Firewall.

Don't bother with any anti-* programs, they're a complete waste of money for most users.

Anti-Spyware for mac is complete rubbish and anti-virus programs only make sense if you're worried about manually passing on PC Viruses (that can't hurt your mac and would have to be manually transferred by the user).

i tried to install virex once and i got the kernel panic and it did want to boot. had to archive and re-install, all was saved accept for the admin account settings.

this thread also made me happy to have my mac cause i spent most of my spare time this week re-loading a PC laptop and trying to get anti-virus for my PC.
