Solve a VMWare/Parallels and Sophos Anti-virus slowdown
Authored by: macavenger on Mar 20, '09 02:21:21PM

I work as a computer support tech for Frontier Alaska - a large regional Alaska based airline. We run 99% mac computers, and until recently we never ran anti-virus. However, we ran into an issue where a word file we were e-mailing around was infected with a macro virus. Didn't affect us any, until the CEO was unable to send it-it got blocked by e-mail virus filters. After that, we started installing Sophos on our machines. So yes, even on a mac there is a use for virus scanners.
