    Today, I bought my second MB Pro --- so sweet!

    I will mostly use it for PSD, Final Cut, Logic, Entourage and iTunes.

    However, I am also planning to use Fusion/Parallels to run, exclusively, Microsoft Excel, PP, Word and Acrobat. I will NOT use the Internet or play games while in Windows mode. Does the following setup reasonably protect my mac from viruses?

    1. Bootcamp
    2. Fusion/Parallels
    3. Install anti-virus software on Microsoft side
    3. Do not operate Outlook or Internet on PC side
    4. Receive all e-mails on Mac (Entourage or G-mail)

    you should be fine. Might even be overkill.
