    I had a question on Parallels, I understand that there is not really a need to run antivirus and spyware on osx but if you are running xp using parallels do you think there is a need for one? I only use xp for work and if I do anything in the internet it would be from Firefox on osx.

    you should be fine without it, as long as your not downloading loads of junk on os x and moving it over to windows.

    but it never hurts to be safe.
