It looks like Apple has again recommended that Mac OS X users install antivirus software. They do it in the Snow Leopard security page as described below: Apple recognizes virus and malware threat to Mac OS X and once again recommends antivirus software? I don't know what's going on with Apple when it comes to antivirus. They recommend it then backtrack. Now it shows up again with Snow Leopard. It's surely gonna open up the debate as to why Apple has posted the recommendation yet again.
How and where do you get Apple Computers repaired after Applecare has run out, and what sort of costs would be involved. Only asking because I have equipment that it has run out on and the wife wants the box/boxes gotten rid off....
I read a few posts that gave me the vibe that Apple basically rolls out a bunch of stuff with the same configuration, and when someone wants a machine with more horsepower, they take one of these out the stock components and put in the higher end stuff. Is this true?
As time passed, we have many, many computers around our institution. At some point, users were able to update their individual software without admin assistants. However, we have changed the policy, and users can't do this anymore. Therefore, is there an easy way to push updates to multiple apple computers? The apps that need to be updated include:
1. Apple OS
2. Individual Applications
3. Apple Firmware
If you could list what product works best, and if Apple does have a in-house solution.
I set up the icloud on to my computers, now I cannot connect my iphone to my computers, I get a err message saying it is drawing to much power from my computers, whats up?I didn't have this problem before andÂ it is on both my imac and my macbook.
I need to run an antivirus from a usb key before Windows XP Pro loads, but since there's no BIOS I'm not sure how to do this. Can anyone provide the steps to tell the Macbook Pro to look for the usb key prior to initiating the boot sequence?
I tried holding down the option key while booting, but the key isn't recognized.
New to mac, I have been a pc user for years and bought alot of anti-virus software to protect my pc's from virus's. Now that I have A mac what should I worry about as far as virus's go? what is the best anti-virus software out there for mac's and is it needed?
I'm new to Macs and was wondering about virus protection. I've heard I don't need any but sometimes when I'm logging into MySpace I get a warning about potential virus threats and some sort of scanning system starts up. I managed to get this url from it. liteantimalwarescan.com
Is this something I need to worry about? Is it a virus and do I need virus protection?
I have 2 MBPs. One has Intego suite and other other will get Norton Internet Security for Mac in next 30 minutes.
The intego one has a suspect malware. Instead of uninstalling the Intego and installing the Norton, I was wondering if I could install Norton on the clean Machine and then boot Intego machine by pressing T like in transfer mode when you set up a new mac.
Once the HD of Intego Machine is visible, could I run the norton from the other machine on the HD of the intego by right clicking it and say scan for virus etc..
I'm new convert and LOVE my MacBook Air. There is something, however, that keeps me up at night. VIRUSES/SPYWARE/WORMS, etc. I've read some posts here and what I'm getting is that an Anti-Virus program is not necessary on my Mac. I do have Norton AntiVirus 10.2. Is that enough? What about firewalls, spyware, etc. After years on a PC, I'm addicted to these things. Should I upgrade to Norton Internet Security?
I have Trend Micro Titanium right now and it seems to be doing a good job, like the guy at the store reccomended but I want ultimate security...Any imput on what is the best software for cleaning and keeping my mac clean?
I am new to the macworld and realize that one of the perks to having a mac is much less risk to viruses, spyware, etc. I have heard, however, that this does not necessarily mean one shouldn't invest in an anti-virus application. I am wondering if mac users typically invest in one. It might help me make the decision whether i should.
so lately after switching from windows to mac i've been suffering from Virus paranoia, running scan after scan every day on my pc. now i ask myself, should i have an antivirus for mac?i realize there are only trojans for mac and you have to type in your password to get them but should we run antivirus software as good cititzens? to protect windows users? to stop the spread of viruses? Voice your opinions and what antivirus is best for mac and if we even need one.
After reading and posting about the CS4 trojans and iWork Torjans, it made me think. How do we know all these AV softwares are safe? I mean especially if the claims about that intergo or whatever, how do we know there not deliberately releasing trojans just to boost sales? Or steal our personal info? Do we really know what our AV softwares are doing? I know I let mine scan in the background and I don't even think about it unless it notifies me of a problem.
