Please do not get me wrong over what you are about to read, since I have huge admiration for developers who create great apps for the Mac as Shareware or Freeware (and occasionally good value Commercial) downloads. My concerns over this are: 1. Anyone subscribing to MacUpdate is smarter than the average bear, thus: 2. Anyone subscribing to MacUpdate knows the advice already posted by ZBOB - the best anti-virus defence is planted between your ears, and 3. How responsive can the developer guarantee to be when (NOT IF) an OSX virus gets into the wild? It takes a significant amount of monitoring and resource to implement an update to the filtering. The developer, PC Tools, offers no information about its history, size or structure on its web site. For all I can tell, this is a script-kiddie working from a garage. And the name PC Tools suggests a Windoze oriented operation, despite well-written copy telling me that everything is Mac oriented and does not bloat the apps database with Windoxw only virii (aka "viruses" for the illiterate). I know that Macs are in the frame for attacks from the e-vermin, and I also know that every single major AV vendor has given up trying to flog their wares to Mac users, for good reasons: there has, until now, been no credible threat. The time is therefore right for a dedicated and serious Mac software developer to come out with a product, that if it delivers, could easily become dominant. Meanwhile, I will not download this valiant (maybe?) attempt, as the cynic in me says that this is more likely an attempted sale based upon FUD - Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt = buy now; better safe than sorry.

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.

You are truly naive. As an ex-IT, I can tell you there are indeed viruses (as well as trojans and worms) targeted at OSX... and they've been around longer that you probably know. As the saying goes... you have right to your own opinion, not your own facts.

Still clinging to that fallacy? Apple was just hit through a Java vulnerability, then there's Flash, Acrobat… Not to mention phishing, infected BitTorrent app files, there was even a poison jpg 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

The interesting issue of note is slow-down. I've test Sophos extensively and found it could almost keep up with basic Symantec products (though not with the corporate level stuff I use). Have you tried Sophos and can you effectively comment on a precise difference in speed and "balking" vs. this package? I ask because I do know people who need protect for free because they can't afford what I use... nor can they get it.

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.

Just forget this piece of sh*t and stick on ClamXav. It has been reliable for Years!

Master.... ClamXav is not reliable when compared to Sophos or Symantec. The only thing it has going for it vs. Sophos is that it is smoother. It has nothing vs. Symantec... not even close. I've run it against sandboxed virii, and it failed 25% of the time against stuff that both Sophos and Symantec caught.

Why would they need to update it since early 2012, because there have been not a single Virus in the wild on Mac since then! This App is uselss as not a single Virus can affect your Mac today.

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