    "Easy to use, full MAC, Windows, AND iPhone protection"

    October 22, 2009  |   By dejoyf


    Easy to install; runs in background; most important is the full protection it provides for MAC, Windows, AND iPhone viruses. This is important for MAC users who have any type of Windows files or who send emails to Windows users.


    Price; UI is OK but could be bit better.


    After much research and trial with other programs, this offers most comprehensive and unintrusive protection for the MAC and related transactions with Windows users and iPods/iPhones.

    Updated on Oct 26, 2009

    There was a slight, but noticeable degradation in system performance when full MAC and Windows virus monitoring is turned on. Still well worth the trade off.
