    I want a good Virus program for my Mac, just in case.

    In addition, I'd like a good application that takes away spyware and the like.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    You don't need any. Just turn on the Firewall (Sys Prefs --> Sharing --> Fire Wall tab --> Turn on FireWall)

    agreed, just turn on the firewall. Having antivirus software, from user reports, has made things worse for many, just steer clear of the stuff.

    Alright. I'll do that.

    Thanks.

    By the way, how can I change my 'Short Name' on my account?

    Anyone have a program that'll get rid of extra crap, something similar to CCleaner on Windows?
