Editors' Review

While still rare, spyware affecting Mac operating systems has gained more attention in recent years. MacScan for Mac provides an effective and supported solution.

Available as a free demo version for 30 days, MacScan for Mac requires a $39.99 payment in order to continue its use. Despite the program's large size, the installation process went well. The user is immediately prompted to install updated spyware and tracking cookie definition files after starting the program for the first time, and MacScan automatically checks for updates regularly. The clean, simple interface should be familiar to any virus scan user. Large, well-placed buttons are easily identified by their function. Users have the option to perform quick scans of commonly infected files or full system scans, which take far longer. The quick scan performed during our testing was completed in a typical amount of time and located numerous tracking cookies, indicating the program performed its function well. Upon request, the program isolated the selected tracking cookies as would be expected. The program did not find any spyware, but there may not have been any to find.

While debate exists regarding the need for spyware scanning on Mac systems, MacScan performs well and is easy to use, which makes it an attractive option for any Mac user looking for a good spyware removal software.

Pros

Only thing it found so far is some tracking cookies, mostly innocent ones with is a good thing as I hopefully will stay "virus"-free, or at least my computers will.

Cons

One request is that when it finish a scan and nothing to report just send a notice and quit instead of forcing me to klick OK to quit when there is nothing to report,
