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

    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!

    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."

    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!!
