    If you run Windows 7 via BootCamp that's just like running Windows on a Windows machine. You need antivirus software in that case. You also need it for Parallels if you plan on connecting to the internet with it.

    I also don't really understand the "Don't mroogle" statement. You could have found the answer for yourself very quickly. Here's a thread with some recommendations:

    As for the mroogle comment i put it cause all my threads people just put mroogle and i did search it but wasnt really satisfied with the answers.... plus it promotes internet webtraffic which is good for the website :D
