My MacBook Pro is on a go-slow, but I thought Apples didn’t get viruses – The Guardian (blog)

Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and it’s up to you to help him or her out – a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturday’s paper.

This week’s question:

I use a MacBook Pro. Recently it seems to have slowed a lot, possibly after I opened a dodgy email, even though I thought Apples didn’t get viruses. Would readers recommend free anti-virus software for Macs, or should I pay for one? If so, which?
