"The best free antivirus for Mac"

January 05, 2012  |  By GamerKel

 |  Version: Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition 7.3.5

Pros

It runs smoothly, doesn't take up resources and it scans for the latest threats.

Cons

None! It does everything you expect a free antivirus to do and more.

Summary

I recommend this to anyone who owns a Mac and doesn't want to pay for the expensive software. It's just as good.

"Can't install"

December 11, 2011  |  By Fred_Mane

 |  Version: Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition 7.3.5

Pros

Absolutely none

Cons

Will not install.

Summary

Tried installing numerous times. Says it can't connect to Sophos server. When you click the help link it takes you to a forum thread with several pages of posts from disgruntled users. Some managed to get it to instal by clicking their date/time in toolbar. If this product can't even install properly, I will not trust it to protect my system. Free is nice, but too often, you get what you pay for. Moving on to something more reliable.
