Hi, I'll be getting a Mac Mini in the next few weeks and Im trying to figure out the best to make sure It will be secure. This will be my first Mac I have previously only used Windows computers. I will be using it to Surf, Email, iPhoto, iTunes and for World of Warcraft. Questions : 1) Is it advisable to create a standard account to use for all the above and save an administer account for if/when it is needed? (I will be the only user) 2) OSX firewall use it or is the firewall built into router sufficient? 3) FileVault worth using? 4) Is an active Anti Virus recommended or will a scan on demand suffice ? Any additional advice is gladly welcome. Thanks. EDIT : 11/04/2011 Hi all, Thanks for the answers to my previous queries - I have a few more if you can help. 1a) I will receive my Mac mini either today or tomorrow and I was wondering will the OSX installed be up to date ? If not whats the best way to do this as Ive read about single or combo updates - I understand the difference but from reading forums alot of people advise combo "just incase" - is combo always advised? 2a) After initial setup I will disable wifi on the mini as I'll be using ethernet - will simply turning wifi off on the mini suffice or is more needed to secure it ? 3a) Is it correct that OSX updates contain all needed drivers for the computer? e.g I dont need to go to the nvidia site for latest GPU drivers. Thanks.
