    Security pgms for Mac??
    Have recently converted from the PC dark side to my new iMac.
    In my research,have read endlessly that Macs don't get viruses,
    sound Linux base,only occupy small portion of the market,etc...

    Some Mac people I talk to don't run any antivirus or anything.
    Is there any security problems I should worry about (spyware)??
    If so,what pgms should I run?
    Shouldn't I have something so I don't send things to PC users?

    Thx,
    Doug

    Yeah it is courteous to run antivirus just so you don't pass around and infect your fellow windows users. But if you got a virus it won't harm your computer so nothing to worry about on your end. I will do a search to find some threads on some antivirus programs.

    Many many more threads if you put antivirus, antivirus software, antivirus programs, et cetera, in Search Tool at top. Just some to get you started I guess.
