I purchased one copy of .Mac and I want to know on how many Mac's I can use the Virex antivirus.
I have it installed, but turned off. I can scan any files that I feel might need it when the time comes, but I don't get to many files from people though email to begin with, so I don't bother to use it much.

All of 'em

You could use Virex on all of them. Log into your .Mac Account on each Mac, download Virex. Yes, it's that simple.

BTW, I had the same question B4 my pB arrived... :D

Virex 7.2 or 7.5....

What are you all using?

Virex 7.2 came loaded on my iMac and v7.5 is available on .Mac (note that 7.2 appears to still be sorted - virus updates provided, etc., so it's not a "dead" version, from what I can tell).

The reason I ask: I recall reading that v7.5 was causing some type of issue(s) with mail apps...something along the lines of it deleting messages in certain situations (that one wouldn't want deleted).

Would appreciate if somebody would comment on the 7.2 vs. 7.5 item.

Thx,
Frank
