hey guys, i have a question, i just got a new mac computer and i want to send all my mp3 files from my windows computer to this computer, i was going to use aim/ichat to do this. my question is, if any of the windows files are infected with viruses, can it transfer to my mac without the virus transfering? are there any specific file transfer programs that i can use to neutrailze the possibility of this happening? Thanks very much in advance for any help.

Hi fivemagics77, and welcome to BleepingComputer. If you run scans with a anti virus, anti spyware, a anti malware, and use a firewall that have current updates then you should be good to go. You can scan the files with your anti virus before you transfer them as well.

As for the program that you are going to use, perhaps there will be someone else here that can speak to this, I'm not familiar with it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Why don't you simply burn a CD of DVD ? The discs' formats are universal.
