Is Nortons Antivirus worth getting. Until now I havnt had any antivirus software at all. What is the best to get. I have always been under the impression that we mac users are pretty safe and dont need all the extra utilities - am I being naive? Any suggestions welcome.

"pretty safe" = completely safe. There are no viruses for mac, so antivirus software is a waste of money unless you think you might "re send" some windows viruses to other people accidentally.

Cheers Disko, thats what I thought. How 'bout general maintenance software, any suggestions or are the system disc utilities suffice.

Disk Utility should be fine. We have a thread (http://forums.appletalk.com.au/index.php?showtopic=6958) on AV software questions too.
