ez061111, the misinformation that you have posted is dangerous, and you really should not make false claims.

Malware exists for OS X. It has for many years now. That you continue to claim otherwise is a disservice to anyone that might read these posts now or in the future.

Smith you should read and point out anyplace that I have stated Malware doesn't exist for OS X. You are doing a disservice to the readers and yourself for not reading that the topic is "VIRUS CONTROL". A virus is a subset of Malware but not all malware are viruses.

It is dangerous to state that somebody says something that was never said or inferred and what I stated is not misinformation.

For others that would like a solid and concise FAQ on the subject of malware, including the topic of Mac Virus:

Is there anyway for me to tell if my Mini is getting bogged down with things i don't need --

my internet speed seems to have fixed it self --i now have 50 up / down --but my computer seems to take too long to load pages--there was a time when pages loaded in a few seconds--now it takes 20 seconds


when i'm on Safari --is that the only program running ?

can i shut stuff off ?

i have 4 gig memory
