First off, I'd like to start by saying that I've searched the archives and read previous posts on this matter. Just need to narrow it down a bit. 1) Many are against antivirus. But the other half do, for protective measures. (I've been a PC user until I made the switch so you can understand the paranoia. It was mentioned in other posts that Norton makes money off of switchers, which I guess I'm an addition to.) do I get antivirus or no? 2) many people who have recommended an antivirus go for Nortons. And the other half tells us to stay away from Nortons in CAPS! do I get Nortons or McAfree? 3) One side says that there are no known virus for mac OS. Others mentioned they've had attacks. So, do I just keep my firewall (the one built in) on, and do system updates often, and forget about the antivirus and save money. Or, do I choose between nortons and mcafree and feel safe. I'd also like to mention that I used Acquisition (downloading music) often. Sigh, OK, advice anyone?
