    NOT nessesary for the moment unless you forwarrd a lot of files to your wintel firends. They are the only once that can get affected not your Mac ;)

    If you need a .mac account gives you Virex ;)

    I don't normally use virus protection, but sometimes I need to scan my system before I'm allowed to connect to a client's network. On such occasions, I use Virex.

    I just downloaded 7.5.1 and 7.2.1 from .Mac on Friday. 7.5.1 because I wanted to try it, and 7.2.1 becuase Palm Syncing is broken with 7.5.1. Damnit.
