    "ClamXav scanner is awesome !"

    February 4, 2014  |   By meljakob

    Version: ClamXav 2.6.2

    Pros

    Easy to download-install , runs great & fast , it pin pints all in detail . What other "famed" Mac scanners missed in scanning files , ClamXav always have found if any malware was present ! Thankfully this time around my computer is clean . A big Thank you to the developer :)

    Cons

    None that I can relate to .

    Summary

    I strongly recommend this software to any Mac user .

    "Mac users - A necessity!"

    January 23, 2013  |   By Jim Babcock

    Version: ClamXav 2.3.4

    Pros

    Extremely small footprint

    Cons

    Issues with quarantine of emails

    Summary

    I have used ClamXav since 2005. Mark Allan, a very talented Scot, designed and developed this UI to the open source clamav. I use it so that I will never forward any file that contains a Mac or PC signature to a friend . Plus, my iMac is Malware-free at all times no matter where I roam.

    I suggest getting the Web site version that includes Sentry (not available in App Store), a 24/7 watcher of ANY file I or any app might download!

    I also use an optional email script that scans every message + attachment BEFORE it is loaded into my Inbox.

    "Easy-to-use virus protection program"

    July 21, 2012  |   By ltsilver

    "Never found a thing. Sentry crashes."

    May 12, 2012  |   By Danihilist

    Version: ClamXav 2.2.5

    Pros

    Seems to work, but hard to tell since it's never caught anything in the 8 years of use.
    Not too heavy on resource usage.
    Free. Donations encouraged.

    Cons

    Fairly light on resource usage.
    Sentry started crashing, often, in the past few days. Maybe too many sites open in tabs for it to handle? Don't know. It's up to date.

    Summary

    Hard to judge an anti-malware product when it's never caught any. Have had Camino and Opera 'hijacked/spoofed' twice in the years that I've used Clam XAV.
    Glad it's free in a society where most things one buys causes one to subscribe to payments and then spend more money to further use the products, like television, smart phones, computer systems, etcetera.

    "ClamXav for Mac worked very well"

    May 6, 2012  |   By meljakob

    Version: ClamXav 2.2.5

    Pros

    Ran quickly & found 6 viruses , all quarantined .

    Cons

    Sentry set up has slowed down the computer use somewhat .

    Summary

    Easy to understand & to follow the initial installation for a non-technical person ;] Worked well in the background finding the malware & I like the easy to read window of where this scan has located them . Would recommend it to all Mac OS X Leopard users .
