In fact, they added malware protection in Snow Leopard. See "Apple secretly updates Mac malware protection.
If ClamxAV is not something you want to use, try the free antivirus for Mac by PC Tools called iAntivirus with free support at their forums.
Hi! I've already posted one discussion about "where can I get an online scan for the mac" for viruses or spyware.
It turns out MacScan is just spyware which was the most concerning to me. I loved their user guide and it was really easy to you.
But what about viruses - do I really have to do the virus check as well...
one suggested was the free CLAMav (I think its called this) ... I was totally confused by the clamav free antiVIRUS software website and FAQ's and documentation and it seemed it would really mess up my mac so I'm not thrilled with their documentation for a non-technical person like me.
Could I get more comments on the ANTIVIRUS part of my question. What is best - what won't get me into contacting support immediately because it is too confusing. Again I use mac os10.5.8 (Leopard) but will be on Snow Leopard soon then Lion next year.
