    hi, i know that there are no viruses for mac, and that i dont need an antivirus program, but i need the antivirus program that makes it so it detects windows viruses, so i dont spread them to pc users over email. if someone could give me the name of a free one, that would be well appreciated. thanks!

    Mroogle isn't a Google search. It searches the Mac Rumors forum, the implication being that there are plenty of topics already on this subject.

    That's funny, your computer must not work. I clicked on the Mroogle link and found your answer... in several different threads.

    Unfortunately, many of those threads are quite old.

    MS just released their own Anti-Virus software. It's pretty simple, lightweight, and it works well. It's called Microsoft Security Essentials.

    It seems no one can do anything for themselves anymore. Apparently a link to tons of results that answer the questions isn't good enough.

    OP, would you prefer for someone to come to your home and install some AV software for you while making you dinner?
