        Norton SAV (corporate server/client setup) + a small script to make sure the virus definitions are up to date. The LiveUpdate is way too irregular to ensure any form of stability.

        It's fast and relatively resource-friendly.

          Windows Onecare let me down so I wiped it from my disks. I no use the commercial AVG Internet Suite on all 5 computers.

Sorry to come off as arrogant about it, but that is how confident I am about my Mac and not having to worry about getting viruses on it. I have never run any sort of antivirus software on any of my Macs as long as I have had them, and I never, ever will.

              You make a valid point, but for now, I do not believe we need to worry about any sort of virus affecting the Mac platform for a long while. I'm not saying that there won't ever be a virus created for the Mac, though, so don't interpret my post as that, but I'm saying the likelihood of it happening anytime in the future is not going to happen.

              That said, there is no reason to install any sort of virus protection on a Mac whatsoever at this point in time. The built-in firewall Apple provides is more than you need on your Mac. The Mac OS is very secure, and moreso than the Windows OS as far as viruses are concerned (which, frankly, is a no-brainer ).
