    Symantec Anti Virus - Does it detect Mac Viruses, Windows Viruses or both?
    I was wondering if anyone out there knew if Symantec Anti Virus detects viruses that only affect Macs or if it detects viruses for windows as well?
    Mine found a few, and was wondering since I haven't noticed anything go wrong with my MacBook.

    Since there aren't any Mac viruses, I would imagine it finds primarily Windows viruses.

    The software companies have done a remarkable job of creating and marketing a product that is simply unnecessary.
