MacScan support response.
I had an issue when my MacScan V2.9.4 reported that it was not registered. i have had a registered activated copy for several years. One email to SecureMac got me a solution is 24 hours. Way to go!

Does exactly what it says it will do. Like having that specialized tool in your kit for when you really need to fix something.
Had small issue with license mode vs demo mode that popped up unexpectedly. Kelly Raba, tech support at SecureMac, got on it straight away with an effective (and free) update fix.

MacScan User Tip! Make sure you're protected with the latest Mac malware and blacklisted cookie definitions by clicking on the MacScan Preferences and ensuring 'Updates' is checked appropriately. You can also check manually by clicking on the MacScan menu > Check for Updates!

MacScan has a serious problem: it only detected 2 of 51 different malware samples in a recent test:

This report is obviously a bit dated now, but it provides a table of results for 16 Mac AV apps.

Been working with Kelly @ SecureMac due to activation issues. The attention and help was personally oriented and successful. A nice thing to
have these days. Highly recommended.

There is a newer study by this same person here:

It looks as more AV apps and at a wider selection of test malware.
