Thought I'd ask this on here, as our head of IT has started going on about installing Kaspersky anti-virus software on the company Macs, has anyone on here installed and experienced any troubles with Kaspersky conflicting or impeding their Mac's performance at all? We use the Macs for design work eg InDesign, Photoshop and some video editing too so obviously we don't want to install anything that's going to give us any issues with performance or other conflicts, especially given some of the tight deadlines we have! Have heard of Clam, would that be a better programme to use?
 
TIA

I think the majority of people here, don't us anti-virus software at all.

I would suggest safe browsing for the mac as there are no virus.
