    A good bet would be with Norton anti-virus for the Mac. It's pretty reliable and there's a free trial available from http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...antivirus.html

    If Norton is not your bag - try a google search

    Mac OS X needs anti virus? I don't believe I've ever seen a virus for it.

    I just want to make sure that my Mac systems are 100% virus free. I tried google and did not find any site to download Virex. I hope anyone could show me a link where I can download Virex.

    why not do a search at any of the AV co's and do a search on Mac & OSX?

    here is link to a short list of AV co's

    Now which one I prefer and why is a completly different question...


    Cheers

    I fear so. Like everything apple they're annoying and difficult to get rid of. Annoying graphics and sounds are commonplace.

    Not that you notice any difference anyway with the annoying spinning "thinking" cursor of death forever turning into shut-down
