You can't prove a PC is malware free either.

Now that that's out of the way, You can prove a Windows system is free of

Prove? Right. That's why Microsoft's own VP of Security or some such said
that sometime you just gotta format your hard drive.

You can monitor every program that's running, you can prevent unautorized
changes to the registry. So there is a 100% way to make sure your
is malware free. You can install Windows and have the registry and all
services monitored for malicious activity. Many free programs do this.

And many malicious apps mask themselves as a known process, and some mask
themselves entirely. You never heard of a rootkit? Do you actually charge
people money for advice?

So now you are agreeing that Macs are vulnerable also?
