Editors' Review

+

ClamXav for Mac scans your computer or selected files and folders for viruses to help keep it running smoothly. With clear controls and instructions, this program makes it easy to keep your data safe.

Pros

Straightforward interface: The main interface is split into three sections: a list of your favorite items to scan on the left, scan results on the top right, and status on the bottom right. Buttons in the app's main toolbar allow you to quickly perform primary functions.

Result options: Once you have your scan results, you have several options for dealing with potential issues. For instance, you can choose to show the path to the file, view it in the finder, quarantine it, or just delete it, depending on what it is and why it was flagged.

Cons

Tough on beginners: You may experience difficulty using this program, as it doesn't really guide you through the scanning and deleting process as similar apps do.

Bottom Line

ClamXav for Mac gives you the tools to keep your computer clean. With an uncluttered interface and convenient functionality, this app is a good choice for most computer-savvy users.
