    I'll probably get banned for asking this but I will anyway. Yes I did use the search tool but all the posts I was reading where old.

    Here goes. I just bought a new i5 iMac and was wondering if i should buy virus protection software?

    On both of my Bootcamp partitions, I run Microsoft Security Essentials. It's completely free and does about as good a job as anything else ever does.

    You know what the hard core Mac World is going to say about that.
