Hey Bucks ...

You will still need some sort of anti-virus if you goto those not nice sites or open email with virus/trogan in it. Your windows Bootcamp is basically a windows computer so it will get affected
It will only effect the windows partition part of the system.
In no way will it affect the OS X side of it. So dont stress on that
If your only using it for WWC and NOTHING else save your money


Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!

If all you're doing is playing WoW, that does not require Windows.

Already have a WoW account, head on over to Blizzard's site and download the OS X version.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
