VirusBarrier Scanner overview

VirusBarrier Scanner is a free antivirus and malware removal tool for Mac. Choose between maximum protection to easily scan all files on your Mac which belong to you, or essential protection to scan locations where malware is commonly found. Or manually scan a specific location such as your own document folders. Intego VirusBarrier Scanner is based on the original Mac anti-malware scanning engine found in VirusBarrier. It can scan your computer on a periodic basis or when you request to perform a scan. To scan all files on your Mac in real-time and additional layers of protection, try Mac Internet Security X9, or choose Mac Premium Bundle for the most comprehensive Intego security suite of products.

Same Pro-Engine, less features, but works! It's quick and free! Btw: Intego is a longtime mac-only software producer!

When I woke up my iMac, VirusBarrier Scanner wasn't responding, so after about 10 minutes, I force-quit it. After 3 attempts to launch it, I trashed it and have just downloaded it again from the App Store, hoping that this time it will work. But it won't download! I have clicked on the download "Cloud" 5 times. It goes around and then the cloud appears again and again. No sign of it in my Applications folder. The previous version worked much better!

I really liked it for quite a bit of time. It caught some malware that MalwareBytes and Norton didn't. But recently it won't download the virus definition updates and stalls out when scanning.
