"does what it says on the can..."

May 23, 2011  |  By markpic--2008

 |  Version: ProtectMac AntiVirus 1.1.5

Pros

easy download and installation. 30 Day trial install.

Cons

identified a threat but was unable to remove it. I think its subscription based? Certainly feels like it will have ongoing costs to keep it up-to-date.

Summary

good and informative. Nice trial period :) Time will tell if it remains useful.

"DO NOT INSTALL this! It's a CPU Hog!!!"

 |  Version: ProtectMac AntiVirus 1.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I installed on my 15" MacBook Pro and immediately had overheating issues. The computer ran hot all the time, and drained the battery in less than an hour. I opened activity window and found that the processor was running @ 100% continually due to this piece of software. I uninstalled it and Clamxav and I have no more overheating issues. I also found others who were having the same problem in the Apple discussions forum and traced it to the same cause. Just thought you should know!

"Tested"

 |  Version: ProtectMac AntiVirus 1.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Not bad for a new product. I got some viruses and some trojans in a safe folder and, after I've tried Intego Virus Barrier,Sophos Endprotection,TrendMicro Smart Surfing,iAntivirus and Norton, the only software to recognize that folder and the danger were: ClamXav and THIS ONE!
Good to go for.
Thanks

"Not at all happy, would not recommend."

October 13, 2008  |  By garyandsylv

 |  Version: ProtectMac AntiVirus 0.92

Pros

Cannot think of any!!

Cons

Computer ran very slowly after install.

Summary

My computer is an iMac G4 2.1ghz, not what I would call slow, until I installed this product. Almost straight away the computer slowed to a crawl. Upon investigation with Activity Monitor, it showed the product using between 60 & 80% of the processor, slowing down all other processes. Having un-installed the program, my computer is back to normal. I would not recommend this product!!
