"Fries your Internet Connection! Must reinstall OS!"

July 15, 2010  |  By kludge420

 |  Version: Intego VirusBarrier X6 10.6.6


Lets you reinstall your OS so you get rid of a lot of useless files like pictures of your kids and tax returns and other stuff that was just clogging up your hard drive.


You can't uninstall it and if you try it will turn your computer into a pre-1995 Mac since you won't be able to get on the Internet to figure out how to fix it. Modem anyone? No? Didn't think so.


First let me start off by saying, DO NOT INSTALL THIS SOFTWARE! Unless you want to reinstall your OS that is. There is no uninstall function and if you try to delete the app and its extensions you can no longer use your Internet connection. The only way to fix it is to reinstall the OS. Avoid at all costs

"Easy to use, does the job, no muss no fuss"

June 11, 2010  |  By crazywisdom22

 |  Version: Intego VirusBarrier X6 10.6.6


Crystal clear instruction manual, not a resource hog, easy, intuitive interface. It a contant scan plus quick or full scan after definition updates. First scan took about 2 hours, but I could function as usual when doing so.


Nothing-it does the job well, and doesn't tie up your Mac.


I would highly recommend this product.

"Amazing tech support for me!"

May 27, 2010  |  By arodney

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I had been using X5 and had over 500 days of subscription left. Wanted to upgrade to X6 and transfer so I emailed sales/support from the web site. Within an hour, I got an email back that after sending them a new serial number for X6, they would transfer the extra 500 days. At $34, the upgrade, with an extra year and the new functionally seemed like a deal. Sent them the new serial and in less than an hour, got another back saying to run the NetUpdate and the added days would show up. Sure enough, they did. So thatâ??s awesome support in my book. And X6? Its quite nice compared to X5 with new functionality like Firewall. As a 64-bit app, it scanned my system much faster than the previous version.
