"Never found a thing. Sentry crashes."

May 12, 2012  |  By Danihilist

 |  Version: ClamXav 2.2.5


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.


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.


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 06, 2012  |  By meljakob

 |  Version: ClamXav 2.2.5


Ran quickly & found 6 viruses , all quarantined .


Sentry set up has slowed down the computer use somewhat .


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 .
