With the whole java malware thing, this is not a bad idea.

Since the Java malware exploit, I have been using avast! I use it in Windows as well and it is my favourite.

I heard a few weeks ago that there was some sort of virus out for a Mac. Only one, but I'm not sure if that was fact or fiction. lol. XD

It was a fact. Macs can get viruses. It's just that the virus writers are targeting Windows because there are more computers using Windows. But now that Macs/OS X are getting more popular, it's just a matter of time before more viruses show up. No operating system is 100% secure.
