Macs are not immune to malware, but no true viruses exist in the wild that can run on Mac OS X, and there never have been any since it was released over 10 years ago. The only malware in the wild that can affect Mac OS X is a handful of trojans, which can be easily avoided by practicing safe computing (see below). Also, Mac OS X 10.6 and later versions have anti-malware protection built in, further reducing the need for 3rd party antivirus apps.is there any risk getting any virus/malware or spyware from using sopcast?
i know there is some with pc computers but how bout witht he macbook air 2012?
thanks for the speedy response. i had one more question, i dont have a drive witht he new air and new cd's came witht it.
how do i reformat the comp?
Any Air that came with Lion or Mountain Lion would have a recovery partition. Press command-r to open it and reformat the drive and reinstall the OS.
If it's a Air that came with Snow Leopard, a little USB flash drive came with them to reinstall the OS.
As far as I recall, no Air ever had DVDs shipped with them.
