What do you recommend? Calm and care. By calm I mean that the Windows world is so rife with viruses adware spyware and other varieties of malware it?s a commonly held belief that all computers are susceptible to these kinds of cooties and one would be a fool to operate a computer without some kind of prophylactic utility. This belief is manifest in Windows users who move to the Mac and immediately purchase antivirus software in the belief that it?s a necessary part of owning a computer. And on the Mac it?s just not. The hedge for those of us in the recommendation business is that while there may not be viable virus threats now there could be one day. In order for us to cover our respective patoots we must follow up our ?Nah you don?t really need antivirus software? suggestion with ??at the moment but someday you might? and then we weasel and waffle in anticipation of the day when The Bad Thing Appears and the villagers appear at our gates with blazing torches and the more rustic form of pitchfork. And by care I mean that it?s worth your while to learn the difference between the various cooties that some people too-broadly define as viruses.
