Another thing we have seen more malware type websites that are hard on Windows Machines are now infecting MAC's too. Thank God for a superior Hardware Firewalls, IDS Servers, and Web Filtering Servers or the MAC's would be just as hard hit.

We are seeing less viruses and more malware epically from web sites. (The malware may lead to a virus or some sort of SPAM bot)

So far I have not seen any of the malware web sites infect any other *NIX OS just MAC OS.

The Mac virus is still kicking around?
I thought it blew out a few months ago.
Also, how experienced are you with Macs? I noticed you typed it as MAC as in M.A.C. address and not Mac as in Macintosh.

Most likely because I type MAC a lot for MAC addresses (huge network)...It is just as bad as typing DOS or DoS or Dos or dos. Ugh! or COM or Com or com.

Hummm Mac's all the way back to System 6 or so; as well as Lisa, Apple ][, Apple ][+ etc.

@ IceFire: BTW once you get your MAK (look at that another mac) key from Microsoft you can use it on your 90 trial without the need to reload with the non-trial Windows 7 Enterprise DVD.

I'm not on an enterprise network and I have no access to a MAK server.
I'm just waiting for my upgrade discs, which are really delayed.

@IceFire - There is no MAK server the MAK key is the key you use to activate Windows 7 Enterprise for your first 25 installs while you setup your KMS server. The KMS server will take over from there. For the KMS server to work you must have 25 machines requesting from it. If you are never going to have more than 24 machines then the MAK key will work and contact Microsoft’s KMS servers every 160 days to verify your key and amount of machines and make sure you are legitimate.

I assumed that by your machine specs you were using Enterprise because you have many machines. It never occurred to me you could be using it for 90 days as a test or while you decided on what to buy or if you like Windows 7 etc. etc. etc.

Sorry for the confusion: I figured you had your MAK key ordered and most IT techs will reload the machine with the NEW Enterprise DVD and then apply the MAK key. You don’t have to do this you can just enter the MAK key and 90 trial activates same as if you installed from the Non-Trial Enterprise DVD.

I still have very little idea on what you are talking about.
I'm running the Enterprise trial because i cannot stand Vista. I'm betting that my Windows upgrade kit will arrive before my trial expires, but I only have 55 days left with no response from MSI, so I may go visit my sister and ask her to help me get the college discount on Home Premium or Professional.
