    Aside from the virtues of having an anti-virus in the first place (please, no debate on whether to have anti-virus for OS X in general), which is a better anti-virus solution? CalmXAV or Norton 11?

    ClamXav, without a shadow of a doubt.

    Norton is an infestation in its own right. Clam is free and easy, and it sounds naughty. Bonus points for clam.

    Either of these will eliminate all know Mac viruses. So they both are a 100% solution.

    I would stay away from Norton. It's bloated and their tech support usually goes unanswered, in other words it stinks.

    I don't understand why there is suddenly this mass influx of "What antivirus products to use" threads, have I been blocking them out or have they only just started popping up, and even then, why?!

    Also, a virus would be better than Norton, not that you get any viruses on mac in the first place...

    The best anti-virus on a Mac or PC? An intelligent user.

    Pro tip: If the video you're trying to watch needs a codec that neither QuickTime nor VLC can't play... it's not worth watching.
