Spyware program for Mac's?

Question

I listened to your show over the weekend, and decided I had better run a spyware program on my mac/g4. I cannot find any installations that will work with a mac running OS X or less (I have Mac OS X.1). I am suspicious that I have had some bugs put on my computer as my internet, which is cable and normally runs very fast, is slooooowwww. Can you please help? I have looked everywhere. I tried the link that you suggested to another subscriber, but it went to Birmingham university, and was not letting me in.

thanks!

Mac Security & Spyware Info

The good news for Mac users is that the majority of the adware & spyware industry is focused on developing their "malware" to target PC users through ActiveX controls and DILLs that only work on Windows based computers.

We have found only one product that states that it can scan and remove adware & spyware on a MAC MacScan claims that it can detect, isolate and remove spyware, keystroke loggers and trojans from your Macintosh which could have been maliciously or inadvertently installed on your Macintosh It supports both Mac Classic & Mac OSX For more information see:
