I have tried to download Avira Free Mac Security anti virus with anti malware but this computer will not accept the download. I simply want an extra layer of protection against virus and malware.

    I've been using Bitdefender Total Security for Mac for the last 3+ years (previously for 5+ years on Windows.
    It has very low CPU overhead, runs totally in the background, does Anti-Phishing, Antivirus, Autoscan etc.
    Download a free 30 day trial and see for yourself.

  • Well, with Mac, you don't need to worry about a virus on your machine. I've downloaded a few viruses, (or ones that hurt windows CPUs) and haven't worried about protection. Don't know how the guys at apply do it, but you will not need virus protection.
    Hope I helped
