Does AVG work on an Apple Mac?

My friend in France has an apple mac and has just sent me a virus. It is "mimail" it sends to all in the address book advising that your email account is about to expire. AVG picked it up on my PC and stopped it. But he has downloaded AVG on my recommendation but it won't run?
If it doesn't run on a mac is there a free antivirus programme out there that does? Thank you.

Thanks for that John. So now we are looking for one that does work with a mac. I have a german friend who has a mac, maybe I should contact him and see what he has?

Thanks everyone, didn't even enter my head that there might be a Mac Users Forum. Will try that.
Will close this thread now. Thanks again.
