OK, Im not a troll, just a confused PC user. And youve probably been asked all this stuff before. Im impatiently waiting for my first Mac to be delivered next week, and hearing all sorts of conflicting information. I just did a Google news search for Apple Macintosh, and saw news about a Mac Trojan. Ive been reading some of the threads here and info on other sites, and some people are saying that Macs wont get any of that stuff as long as you use common sense (which isnt common, I dont know why they call it that), and using technical jargon thats beyond me. When I went to high school, computers were huge things that used punch cards and people laughed at the thought that someone would actually want one in their house. I dont use iphones or wifi and am not sure what all that stuff is about. So if you could apply the KISS principal here, it would be appreciated. Thanks. Anyway, how many Mac users do use an anti-virus? Is Mac malware starting to show up? How safe is it, really, without all the Mac vs. PC mud slinging? Should I use an anti-virus on the Mac, and if so, whats a good one? Ive already completely messed up one computer trying to remove a virus myself after getting directions on how to remove it off the internet, and in the past six weeks have received two infected e-mails supposedly from friends, but they did not send them. I use the computer to check e-mails, chat on chat boards, check the news and weather, and word processing. No questionable web sites. Thanks.
