    If I've got Windows XP installed on my Mac, should I also install an anti-virus? Or does it not matter because it's still on a Mac and not a PC? I was curious because I've recently install XP, and I just thought of it now. Thanks in advance!

    You can still get viruses on your virtualized XP instance, especially if you connect it to the internet, so yes, antivirus is a must.
