"Good basic Antivirus monitoring"

October 22, 2009  |  By dejoyf

 |  Version: ClamXav 2.0.3


Easy to install; protection from both MAC AND Windows-based viruses (very important for attached MS office docs); runs in background; free


Scanning is bit on slow side but non-intrusive so it really wasn't a big deal; does not repair infected files-either deletes or quarantines based on user selection.


Overall a good basic tool for comprehensive monitoring.

"Open Source anti-virus protection for Macs"

September 25, 2009  |  By jlking3

 |  Version: ClamXav 2.0.3


Free. Daily updates. Sentry feature will check selected folder(s) for changes. Finds viruses that can infect Windows-based computers, allowing you to avoid spreading it to others.


Somewhat slow. Scanning a hard disk is not intuitive. Cannot quarantine single emails. Does not repair infected files; can only quarantine or delete them.
