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.

Last virus update was 6/14/2012. Hardly a useful app.

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.

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.

Thus.spake.z had trouble on 13 Oct 2009
I, also, have the issue of my MacBook Pro's temps sometimes shooting up and fans spinning at over 5000 rpm when "Protect My Mac" is on.
When checking Activity Monitor, I find that iavd is at nearly 100%. Turning "Protect My Mac" off brings temps back down and fans back to idle speed (2000 rpm).
Hope the developers find a fix for this issue.
Other than this one problem, iAntivirus seems to work ok and is fast. It hasn't found any viruses, yet, but that's because there aren't any active ones in the wild at this time, but I do like to keep an anti virus program available and run it once in a while.
