    If imac Mountain Lion is so good at preventing antivirus and malware, why am I getting scam emails, ones that are telling me that a problem has been detected and that I should click a link to solve the problem? I never used to get these sort of emails when I had my Windows computer with antivirus and anti maware software installed.

    Because there are still gullible people on the Earth who think a computer is like a toaster.

    Alas no longer, the bread slot has been removed from the new iMacs and the Retinas never had one to begin with. There is however an external toaster available.

    Most ISP's have an email address for reporting abuses of their service - it is usually of the form abuse@xxxxx.com where xxxxx.com is the ISP.

    Good.  (I never got another one after notifying them.)  Hopefully, it will be the same for you.
