Solve a VMWare/Parallels and Sophos Anti-virus slowdown
Authored by: lugal on Mar 21, '09 08:21:37PM

It's not ridiculous if you share files with Windows users. Though Macs aren't vulnerable to any current viruses themselves, they can certainly be vectors for viruses to infect other systems. And, if you're in any sort of professional environment, being the vector by which a client or colleague gets a virus can be very embarrassing and costly. So, as distasteful as it may seem, running antivirus software on a Mac can actually make a lot of sense in certain situations.
