Also, as someone else mentioned, if you intend to install Windows on your Mac, either BootCamp or a Virtual Machine, you should seriously consider running AV protection.

Absolutely, but you must run windows AV to protect your windows system, which should be sandboxed so that it is separate from the mac os and your mac files, always.

I use fusion, for instance, but I don't allow fusion free access to all my mac files. I have to drag and drop between the two, but that's worth it for the added security. (You can give fusion access to your documents folder, for instance, which I think is very unwise, although convenient.)

Absolutely. I always set it to use a single fixed shared folder.
