Antivirus Utilities

I'm sorry to report that some people in this world are not as nice as you and me. Some of these people express their not-niceness by making outrageous demands of waiters; others talk through movies; still others create computer programs designed to cause mischief. This mischief can come in the form of such harmless pranks as messages that unexpectedly pop up on your screen or in more malignant forms that destroy data on your hard drive. These programs are generically termed viruses. The people who create them are specifically termed jerks.

If you pay the slightest bit of attention to the media, you've heard of computer viruses. These digital cooties bear such colorful names as Code Red, Sircam, and Michelangelo, and they garner a load of press when they're unleashed on the Web. And if you follow the press, you're likely concerned that one of these things is going to make its way to your Mac and commit unspeakable acts on your previously inviolate hard drive.
