I'm running iAntivirus Free Edition without any serious problems. What advantage would accrue from my upgrading to the paid-for edition?

There's something really hinky about AV software that requires on to go to the MacCrapStore to get updated malware definitions. Various other free AV ware, including ClamXav and Sophos, update via the app and can do so on a daily basis.

Is this a subscription app, disguising itself as a freeware title? I wouldn't mind my paying a one-time fee of $50 or whatever. I'll never buy a subscription app. Symantec made its Mac version of anti-virus app a subscription app a few years back.

My experience. Excellent guard for the bank account and Facebook. It features 1 - Mac does not slow down. 2 - Easy to use. 3 - easy removal. 4 - Do not consume a lot of resources. 5 - feel confident

MAJOR PROBLEM! I am a Canadian and this program is ONLY available in the US App store. That really sucks. Hope this will soon be corrected or be available to download outside the app store as CLAMXAV has made available.

In my opinion, based on previous history, Symantec never gives anything away for free without some ulterior motive from which they can profit.

"Updates available regularly through the App Store to help detect the latest breaking threats". By the time the update gets "approved" by the Appstore the whole planet has got infected.

While the older reviews about the discontinued iAntivirus of PC-Tools have nothing to do with this NEW iAntivirus, which seems to be supported again, it would perhaps be a good idea for MacUpdate to remove all old reviews, or at least the ones that warns others that it's not being supported anymore. It would give this program a fair chance.

iAntiVirus was originally from PCTools and was, for a time, thorough in its detection of Mac malware. I liked it and recommended it as a free option for Mac users. Then PC Tools effectively abandoned it, making it worthless. iAntiVirus "1.0" is the result of Symantec buying iAntiVirus and posting a new revision. So you're not having déja vu. My immediate response to anything Symantec is: "Oh yeah, the liars who invented the ongoing anti-Apple malware FUD attack in March, 2005". I've also never had a good experience with Symantec software I'd bought. Symantec's purchase of iAntiVirus reminds me of their purchase then burying of the terrific MacTools utilities. But I keep hoping Symantec will see the error of their ways. So judge for yourself.

For those who are cut off from an AV solution... and I mean a worthwhile one... due to 1) No access or no wish to access the AppStore, and or 2) No access because you are outside the USA... There are plenty of better free solutions than this weak nod by Symantec. I have tested Sophos against sandboxed virii and worms and found it was at least 85-90% spot on vs a "corporate" edition of Symantec AV. It's run by an international AV company with corporate clients around the world. You get the same AV defintions issued for those clients in real time... fear. I'm a Symantec advocate from way back, but this lame entry didn't jump the shark... it fell right in the tank!

Well how about that? Norton revived this and made it a free offering. Thought it was DOA. It is what it says, "Essential". No real time scanning. I'd like to see Norton Safe Web added to this. It does scan your Facebook wall, but there was already an app for that. So far, it's been stable, scans relatively fast, but I have a lot of files, so any scanner will take awhile. I'm giving 4 stars as it's easy, stable (so far) and stays out of the way. Just keep in mind it's not a full fledged solution.

WARNING!!! Although it looks like you can still purchase and download iAntivirus, it has not been updated in some time. If you look at their threat list, it is missing EVERY new Mac malware that appeared in 2011! (For example, MacDefender and its variants and Flashback.) DO NOT USE!

After spending the last 48 hours reinstalling OS X on an iMac and two Macbooks, I need to at least give this a try. This botnet is real and completely devastating. I've never pirated software and don't use torrents sites. Everything was fine before work and 8 hours later the UI was barely recognizable on all machines, iPod was locked up, and android phone just flashed continually. Never thought this actually happened at this level. Macs are just as vulnerable to this one, and that's really disappointing along with all the other crap I'm still fixing!!!

Tried ClamXAV in 08 when I first got my mac, didn't like it and then started using iAntivirus. It never picked up a virus or indicated an alert (I guess that is a good thing for me, not sure about the software) It does take up RAM and Memory thought nothing significant, though sometimes it does take too much and I just disable it. A couple of days ago, the website was down, you can read the post here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1013253 Links provided by fellow MacRumor members indicate the unreliability of iAntivirus.

I'm not sure what this AV program is doing. Does it check for Mac viruses only? The download is 3,6 MB small, and no 30 or 60 MB virus database is downloaded as the other AV progs do. Doing any kind of possible update from within the program doesn't download any kind of database. So I wasn't much surprised the program found no viruses on my USB sticks from PC friends. engine version 1.0.0.11 (July 7, 2010) database version: 2.0.49 (July 7, 2010) On the other hand: ClamXav found three and Sophos found two of the viruses on my test USB stick that was infected from a friends PC. Therefore I recommend the free ClamXav and the commercial Sophos (in this order).
