What anti-virus software would anyone recommend?
I don't know which OS you are running, but if you are running OS X, you don't need to worry about viruses so much. I don't think there has been a single virus attack on OS X yet. I guess I could be wrong, but that is one of many things I read about OS X.
I don't suggest any antivirus software. For it to earn it's keep it would have to keep you from getting infected with viruses, but since there aren't any viruses on OS X what good will it do you?
The only times I'd recommend using antivirus are if you shared files with Windows users (so you don't spread anything) or if your network administrator requires it. Those conditions apply to hardly anybody.
I use Norton Antivirus 9.0. It is very easy to to Live Updates.
Read all about it! Use it!
Does other cool stuff too!...and is not as invasive as Norton!
I wouldn't recommend any anti-virus software at all. Just a decent email junk filter for when those poor saps using peecees obliterate your inbox with the latest variant of MyDoom.
Mail's Junk filter will be fine.
Thats the great thing about True Computers running Mac OS X, unlike Crapboxes running Windows, they don't require any 3rd party software to work. Everything you need is included with the Mac.
ALL HAIL APPLE! FOR THEY ARE THE BEST!
OS X viruses don't exist. Actually, two do, but they have never been released onto the web in a malicious form. You really won't need to worry about them.
Don't waste your money.
