Antivirus Software Question

Discussion in 'Apple' started by John Shepardson, Nov 3, 2003.

  1. I am running OSX 10.2.8.

    If I run an antivirus program as one of 2 or 3 users on my mac, will it
    detect the viruses for all users? Or should each user run it.

    I am using Norton Antivirus.

    Thanks,

    John

  2. It depends. Are you scanning your home directory or the entire hard
    disk?
    Probably, unless you can read all home directories and write to them too
    in case you find a virus.
