I wouldnt switch to mac just because you got a virus. Even mac's can get viruses. My brother is a hard core apple person as he buys old macs, refurbs them and then resells them; and in his last mac that was his personal computer; he somehow got a virus. So no, even apple stuff is not impervious to viruses. I would stick with windows.

Im not switching to mac because of the false perception that mac's aren't prone to viruses. Im switching (back) because I grew up on it, it's my preferred setup and UI, and for me, in the long run, is much more reliable and stable.
