  • Is there a free Tiger virus scan out there?

  • #2
    Macs are too small a part of the computer world (under 5%) for hackers to bother with writing virus' for them, thus there are no mac virus' to worry about.

    One of the many benefits of life on the dark side.

            While I fully agree with everyone, it is a waste of time and money, I must say that being careful does not hurt. If you have recently done something out of the ordinary, like open a word document attachment in a email from an unknown source, you may want to check.

            While it is extremely unlikely for anyone using a Mac to get a virus, it is not 100% virus free. Just damn close. If you are experiencing some kind of odd behavior from your Mac, it is likely due to software incompatibilities or poorly written code. Create a another user and log in as that user to see if the problem persists.

              That's funny... i always thought of Windoze as "the dark side" lol...

              Being cautios is always good, but don't go and install Anti-virus software, if anything that will just slow down your cpu.

                if your having problems, 2 words

                REPAIR PERMISSIONS

                or reboot. hah u have no idea how fast a mac feels after its been on for 25 days, 9 hours 32 minutes and 24 seconds (terminal, type uptime) and you then reboot it
