Well, I'm not so sure! Like twl845, I have been using IBM/windows computers since 1983. Have built a number of Intel/windows computers. Two years ago, I purchased an iMac and have no security software running on it except what is provided by the OS. However, I am on the internet constantly, and do worry about catching something. I read that mac's now can get Trojan Horse viruses. In fact in the last couple of days I have been getting a pop up window stating that I have a virus on my iMac. It requests that I click on their remedy for this problem. I haven't opened this popup but simply delete it. However, it came from somewhere and not likely from my iMac itself. Thus, I am not sanguine about the believe that macs don't need AV software.
I'm looking at Intego AV as twl845 was. In the meantime, iIt would be helpful if some of you experienced mac users would wade in on this topic.
