    i've arrived from Windows world to Macland and it's all new but I'm having a pretty good time so far.
    I'm using a new macbook with Snow Leopard and have set it up as best I can so far, firewall activated etc.
    I have also installed Sophos antivirus (don't want to start a discussion on this, I know it's a contested subject but coming from Windows it gives me peace of mind)
    Only one question so far, when I click the App store icon and go to create an Apple id the little lock appears on the browser to say its a secure connection but how do I know its secure?
    There's no https showing and no certificate is given so how can I check?
    Probably a naive question but I'd like to know how it works rather than just blind trust, not that I've brought any Windows paranoia with me or anything:rolleyes:

    What site does the browser say you are looking at? Is it at apple.com?

    It's understandable if you have some Windows "baggage".
    The cure for paranoia is knowledge: Mac Virus/Malware Info

    Which browser are you using?

    I assume that it's Safari or linked in to it.
    I click on the App icon in the dock and it launches and that's it.
    Same as if I click on the Itunes icon and go to the Itunes store.
