Hi everyone. I am considering switching from PC to an iMac & am trying to get my head around everything. It has become obvious that i will still need to use Windows as most of the software applications i use in my work are only available for Windows only. The thing i want to know is through Parallels, can I download Microsoft software applications & updates for existing applications, through Safari (on Mac OS X) and then shift them over to Windows, without having to connect through Internet Explorer in Windows to do it? The reason i ask is if i have to connect to the internet through IE, I presume i will still need to run an Anti-Virus programme. I have heard through many sources that you dont need to run any Anti-Virus whatsoever on a Mac. I'm not sure exactly how this Parallels thing works yet, so any help would be much appreciated. Cheers.
