i need some advice. i know there have been many threads on virus software. pretty much any title you name, someone will tell you its useless and there is no point on a mac anyway. on snow leopard, is this really the case or are these companies selling any protection at all? below is why i ask: im using snow leopard and have my aol account linked to apple's mail app. just recently its been abused and all my aol contacts have been spammed from my address. Is this aol's fault so dump them (have done anyway) or could this be a virus still resident on my mac, and if so which software to buy? aaargghh.
