    Antivirus at school...
    Hey guys and gals I wanted to see if any of you could recommend an antivirus that doesn't rob the resources. I know the OSX doesn't need an antivirus but my college uses that darn blue socket and it requires an antivirus, so if any of you have experience with a certain antivirus and blue socket what worked well for you?

    Thanks

    The blue socket is a security thing that requires certain thing to log into the wireless network at school, and yes it is my personal computer.

    Thanks I just went and got the link for him.

    Also what makes it hard to get a good anti virus for it is that it doesn't update as fast as definitions do on some antivirus software.

    I found a way to avoid having antivirus software ... I logged in using my virtual machine and it scanned the virtual hard drive and accepted the antivirus software on it!
