I'm having problems on multiple sites the past few days and wonder if there could be a virus on my Mac.  I've never used antivirus software since I switched to the Mac but have been using my PC partition quite a bit the past couple of weeks with one program that is not Mac friendly.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    No Windows virus would have that type of impact in OS X.  If you are running Windows, you probably should have some form of anti-virus for running "in" Windows.  It's hard to give any suggestions at this point with the limited info you've provided.  What sites and what types of problems are you seeing?

    I wish to repeat what JoeyR said and that is that if you are running Windows then you need AV software on the Windows partition for virus protection.


    AV software is not needed on the Mac OS X partition of the Mac.
