    When you use bootcamp on a Mac, do you get all those windows virus?
    And when you run bootcamp, can you still use dmg files and exe?

    NOTE: Moved to correct forum.

    BootCamp merely sets up your computer for a Windows installation.
    Once you install Windows, then yes, you can use whatever file types Windows uses and yes you are susceptible to any viruses that Windows has.
