    If your web surfing habits are risky you may want antivirus on a Mac, but if not you really don't need too. I don't have antivirus software on my Mac and don't plan to have any unless they prove that some criminal minds out there have managed to crack OSX. Macs are pretty safe in this regard.

    Thanks! My problem is that I need an antivirus program in order to install the city schools district VPN to log on from home. I just didn't want to muck up my MacBook by messing with a free antivirus program.
