    Does anyone use a program, or know a program to scan for these on a Mac.

    I know OS X is "virus proof" but I do know you can still be affected by spyware and the like.

    Which programs do you use, if any, and what do you recommend that is cheap or free.



    I know with Mac's you basically have to type in your Admin password to install it, and common sense always helps, but just in case, I'd like to have a Spyware remover as a back-up.

    Thanks!

    You can actually go to the online Apple store and see the anti-virus softwares that they sell for Mac OS.

    Using an anti-virus would result in less battery life when unplugged. That's why I wouldn't use one.
