Virus Software
 
I seem to remember reading here something reading AntiVirus software and the need not to use it on the Mac OS.

Is this true ?.

There is a sticky about this subject

Basically, there are no Mac viruses, anti virus software will find any PC viruses on your hard drive but they cannot run under OS X

Use the free ClamX virus scanner if you just want to do the occasional scan
