Review: Mac Malware Remover for Mac keeps your system safe

Delete Trojans and other known viruses using Mac Malware Remover for Mac.

As viruses become more common on Mac systems, the number of tools for detecting and removing them has also increased. Mac Malware Remover for Mac is a simple program that effectively scans for a few known Mac viruses, but lacks the features of a full security program.

The program download completed as quickly as expected, as did the installation. Mac Malware Remover for Mac did require the administrator password for root access. The application did not have any instructions but was so rudimentary that they were not necessary. Technical support for updates was present. The program's main menu is well designed with detailed graphics. A single button starts the scan, which completed within five to 10 seconds. A display indicates whether the computer is infected or not. There are no other functions or features available. Unfortunately, the program only detects four viruses, which is a disappointment. There is also no active protection from future threats or other malware, which are features of other, more complete anti-virus applications.

While basically functional, Mac Malware Remover for Mac lacks many of the features of complete anti-virus programs, making it a poor option for those seeking comprehensive protection for their computers.
