Unfortunately , ClamXav had rather poor detection results in virus/malware tests run by ThesafeMac.com.

-Installed 7.0.37781 got a system panic during the in app update to 7.0.38397.

-Safari and Firefox WebRep extensions are automatically and silently reinstalled at system restart even if they have been disabled from within the app.

-Bad privacy/EULA terms (as others have mentioned the mandatory WebRep browse extensions report back 8every* site that you visit including search engine queries.

--This is too bad because according to tets by TheSafeMac.com Avast has excellent detection rates.

The latest stable version (11 .5.502.146) appears to introduce yet a new Adobe installer that isn't really a full installer at all but requires a net connection so that the Adobe installer can download the files to install. I can't take this nonsense anymore from Adobe. Oh, and that isn't all. The download page for the installer (which isn't really an installer) tried to push Google Chrome into your download as well!

Looks interesting, but how is this different from the web based map.google.com or the Google Earth app? Also, does this require Flash for the street views?

The new version 11 ( seems to have a slight glitch on Youtube. The suggested videos that appear at the end of a clip (the thumbnails within the player) all show a duration of 0:00)

~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/FlashPlayer/#SharedObjects is not being cleared. Doesn't this folder also contain Flash Cookies?

So, the items in that folder are not considered Flash cookies?
