what is the "best" software for protecting Mac from viruses, spyware, malware, key loggers, etc.
I run 10.6.8 on a macbook pro. mostly this is personal use and i am worried about browser vulnerabilities, malware, etc. i use it for online banking, managing my finances, etc. is the most critical concern.

I recommend Sophos Home for Mac. I don't know if it's the "best" but it hasn't let me down.

You have a Mac, therefore "the best" isn't really a big deal, most of the malware in the world is written for PC, so you may never really need anything. Just Yahoo/Google real AV for MAC, and pick one, and you will be good to go.
