"1 star review is totally false and should be deleted"

March 23, 2012  |  By Alinstpete

 |  Version: MacScan 2.6

Pros

Easy to use and install, effective in finding tracking cookies and spyware, updates its cookies and blacklist frequently, software updates provided at no cost after initial purchase.

Cons

May not be strong enough for today's often evil internet kingdom so other measure may be necessary

"No uninstall function forces user to scan or purchase."

March 23, 2009  |  By amitbec

 |  Version: MacScan 2.6

Pros

Nothing. It hijacks your computer.

Cons

It hijacks your computer and should be removed from CNET downloads.

Summary

The design of the user interface is to force users to purchase rather than test the product.
