You don't need any, because there are no viruses that can infect os X. None.
If you insist on having something, use [ClamXav|http://www.clamxav.com>.15" '08 UMBP 2.4GHz/4G/500G XT; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; iPhone 3G, iTouch 32G, Mac OS X (10.6.6), scanners, projector, tablet, laser and photo printers, Pentax K-7, Olympus E-10
eww is "spot on."
There are no viruses that run on OSX. None. Zip. Zero.
There is some "malware," such as Trojans, for Macs, though. But (unlike viruses that can get onto your system without your knowledge), you must approve their installation (via your Admin password) and/or operation (via the "This application was downloaded from the internet ..." prompt).
Appropriately enough, some of these Trojans are included in pirated versions of Apple software, such as iWork!
(If you're running Windoze on your Mac, that's the same as running it on a PC, so it needs all the same anti-everything stuff you'd use on a PC.)
