    My mom has this crazy idea that ALL computers get viruses, EVEN MACS!:eek: ;) :D

    So I promised her I'd get some Anti-Virus software...

    ...I there any?

    Honestly, AV software for the Mac usually just causes more trouble than it saves. I really wouldn't use it.

    Rather, I would set up a non-admin account for normal day-to-day use. Never use the admin account unless you really have to. Never enter the admin password when using the non-admin account unless you know why (installing software, changing settings, etc).

    Slap some sense into her. There's no such thing as a crazy idea that can't be slapped out of someone.
