    Question What's the Best Free Antispyware Program for iBook G4?
    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:

    Yeah thats why i havent used any new ones. 10.4.1 sort of fixed it. OS X now asks before it starts one for the first time.

    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.
