    I am looking for a good Anti-Virus software for my mac. I run 9.2, so I would need something compatable. If any one knows any good programs please let me know. I would prefer if they were free or shareware, but if not still tell me about the software.

    If you are using OS X, then you might need anit-virus software, I would recomend Virex which is included in .Mac, it does not have a great interface, but it is a powerful application. As for OS 9, if you really want anti-virus protecion to protect yourself against pc viruses or the limited amount of mac viruses, I would recomend Virex 6.0. I found Norton to not find viruses where Virex does. Good luck

    Yup. But for peace of mind, I'd still make sure to have some kind of virus protection on my rig.

    Norton is the best, but .Mac will get you good enough protection plus a year of other services.
