    I read a few reviews of the new iantivirus by PC Tools. I tested it out on my work machine and it was surprisingly light on resources and incredibly easy to use. I know everyone usually recommends ClamXAV but I tried that and I didn't like how it didn't run real time, took forever to scan, etc. I know, I know, Macs don't get viruses, blah blah blah, I don't care. It never hurts to be too safe.

    You must have missed where I said, "It never hurts to be too safe." Also, I'm asking for me, not you.

    That depends on what you mean. It could "hurt" performance. :rolleyes:

    I know what you meant though... I was just being a jerk. :p

    It's like getting a motorcycle helmet when you don't have a motorcycle.

    Start worrying about your security when it's actually threatened.
