    Zero. None. Never. 


     


    We JUST had a ton of threads on this. YOU are the best anti-virus. Nothing will happen to your computer that you don't allow. No anti-virus can protect you from actually GETTING the files. They can only clean up afterward.

    Sophos Anti Virus for Mac Home Edition offers business-grade protection free for home use. And the protection literally is business grade the free version is based on the same Mac virus scanner Sophos uses in their Endpoint Security line. Best of all, Sophos Anti Virus for Mac Home Edition detects both Mac and Windows malware. For example, if you use Parallels with a Windows virtual machine on your Mac, files in shared folders on your Mac will be scanned for both types of threats.
