    Since I am new to Mac, lovin it by the way, I want to know if I run Virtual PC on my Mac, does it make it susceptible to the multitude of viruses, worms, etc... that plague the PC world? One of the main reasons I made the switch was to avoid those very things. Plus the fact that I really don't like PC's. :mac:

    Cool
    If you get infected it will only be the windows environment part. The easiest thing you can do is not be connected to the internet while you are using vpc.
