Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition
Full user review
"Very slow disk scan. Perceptibly slowed down my system"
Easy to install.
Nice and clear user interface without "What do they mean by this?" kind of options.
Excellent idea to include a full removal option ;-)
It just wouldn't finish scanning my 500Gb 12 million files drive, even after adding the exclusions they suggested. I left it working the whole night and by 8am there were still more that 9 millions files to go. I planned to do a full disk scan once a week but it turned out that would be impossible.
I tried using the custom scans to limit the number of files to about 3 million, still toooooo slow.
I finally gave up disk scans but decided to leave it running in the background. While it is "silent" I noticed a real perceptible slowdown of my system, too bad.
This was the first time I installed an antivirus system on my computer just to be on the safe side. Sadly, after a few days I finally gave up using it.
I'll try other products and see if they do better... so I may come back to it.
