    Malware removal on a Mac Book Pro
    Hi, I just purchased a new Mac Book Pro. I'm excited for the fact that it will less likely to get infected with malwares; but just in case that happens in the future, I would like to know how can I deal with this problem; any help on this subject will be appreciated.

    Aside from a couple of easily avoided trojans, there is literally no other Malware for Mac at the moment. In those rare cases you encounter a trojan, there are readily available tutorials that advise you on how to remove it. Alternatively, you can down the free iAntiVirus or ClamXAV. For the most part, a little common sense (like only downloading programs from reputable sites) will keep your Mac running clean.

    Also, since this isn't a question or comment about the site itself, I'm moving it to the correct forum.

    You will likely forget those apps even exist by the time that something might actually require them. And they'll be dead and gone, would be my guess.
