    no need, macs don't get viruses just can have the file on them, but cause no damage since they can't get into the operating system.
    There is no spyware on the mac osx operating system at all.

    Only time you might need anti-virus/spyware is if you're networked w/PCs, to avoid infecting them with malware your mac might be carrying. Otherwise you're fine

    This is correct if you are connected to pc's and don't want to be a carrier to give them viruses on your network then get a virus protection program. I reccomend macafee since norton is the worst thing ever made for osx.

    I recommend getting rid of any Windows PC's in your network...
    Best solution to Virus & Spyware issues IMO.
