Microsoft products often carry cross platform macro viruses and you should definitely use antiviral software if going between machines.


The best anti-virus software would be Dr. solomon's Virex (I beleive the macintosh virex has been sold off to some company called NAI). It destroys a nasty and common autostart virus that Norton Antivirus is unable to detect. you can download it from their site for free
