This is a great example of Scumbag Marketing: In VirusBarrier Plus' description above, Intego doesn't say that it's the best-selling antivirus and anti-malware tool available because that would be an unqualified lie. Instead, they word it like this: "VirusBarrier Plus is the best-selling antivirus and anti-malware tool BASED ON THE AWARD-WINNING TECHNOLOGY OF INTEGO'S VIRUSBARRIER X6." But since VirusBarrier Plus is the ONLY APP THAT IS BASED ON VIRUSBARRIER X6, that's not saying much. In fact, since VirusBarrier X6 has a MacUpdate.com rating of only 2.5 stars on a 5-star scale after 106 user reviews, that’s not saying ANYTHING, except that it’s an amazingly sh1tty piece of software! That little trick is just the sort of thing that qualifies a developer for the SCUMBAG AND LYING, ULCEROUS CANKER SORE OF THE YEAR AWARD. And here's another reason why Intego should get the award this year: Here on MacUpdate.com, this crapplication is priced at $7.99, but at the hated App Store it costs $9.99! I wouldn’t touch this junk with a ten-foot pole.

I'll get straight to the point and stick to why I recommend VirsBarrier Plus. I have run this on several Macs on multiple macOSes and have not had any problems. I do not let it run in the background which I think is asking for trouble when your computer gets full and it is forced to check a huge number of files. I run it periodically when I suspect I may have a problem, normally with adware. It still gets the latest definitions, is slow but thorough and I do have a lot of hard drives. Occasionally it finds something and gets rid of it. It does its job and that is all I can ask for. As for the other reviews, I do support and recognise User's wild guesses taken as fact. Especially if they believe every vague remark by random Apple employees who often have no more clue than they do.

This is horrible, horrible software. I bought a family pack, installed it on my computer and my wife's computer. Everything seemed fine, but then her computer started slowing down, more spinning beachballs, performance finally got really bad. Then one day my computer essentially froze, just nothing but spinning beachballs. Took it to the Apple store and they tested all the hardware, everything was fine. Told them I had VirusBarrier Plus installed and they laughed. Said "get that off immediately, that's likely your problem". So, I came home, had to boot to a full cloned backup because my computer was completely unresponsive. ran the uninstaller, restored to my hard drive, and now everything is fine. My wife's computer? Ran the uninstaller on hers and now that computer is working perfectly. This is a garbage app that will do far more damage to your machine than any mac virus (if such a thing even exists) would ever do. Do NOT put this software on your computer, it is essentially malware of its own.

I do not have it on auto-scan. I only run it if I have suspicious activity and have not had what you had. Not to say this isn't happening, but it is the internet and nothing is what it seems.

Especially some of the very odd reviews below. Users rely on accurate honest reporting, none of this helps.

So I paid for a family package for X6 and annual fee, and this cheaper then that. Is this a scam?

You make some very valid points. I, for one, have no intention of purchasing this piece of shit or, for that matter, ANY software from Intego. I send a big, stinky fart to Intego!

Macupdate Staff!!! Come on, get a hold of these reviews. It's not fair to the developers. You shouldn't be able to trash an application because you don't like the app store or without giving an explanation. Does the software not work? Is it hard to use? There should be categories to rate apps on, not an open forum to complain about software marketing or the Mac App Store.

I agree with Mar6473. There have been several attack reviews here which do not even remotely match my experience with the software. They all vilify the software and the developer with absolutely no substantiation.

That is not a review! Seems to me there are other motives.
