"Not compatible with Tiger"

May 13, 2005  |  By zisch_dotmac

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 050511

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This update is only usefull for Panther-users
Virex 7.5.x isn't compatible with Tiger

The VShield is running in the background, consuming up to 90% of the CPU and the rest of the program isn't working. (Errors on starting up Virex, no e-update possible).

"eUpdate"

March 02, 2005  |  By jcraig23

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 050302

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is just notification of updated virus definitions. If you have eUpdate enabled, you'll most likely find that your defs have been updated automatically, negating the need to download this.

"one continuous glitch in an otherwise good product"

January 31, 2005  |  By arete1

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 050131

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I, too, can not get my .Mac Virex 7.5 to use eUpdate. I tried to enter the settings below, but the FTP option was greyed out. As for the product itself, I am very satisfied with 7.5's active scanner, on several occassions it has caught a virus (Windows based, ofcourse) the moment it tried to write to my HD. I just wish I could get my eUpdate working, so I didn't have to download all these manually!!!

v7.5.1 is a good app. Lots of work has been done to improve this app. eUpdates, background scanning. All good!

"the uselessness of this app - why did apple ever..."

January 07, 2005  |  By aaaashy_dotmac

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 050105

Summary

.......?
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
virex is quite possibly the most useless app to have ever got the 'backing' of apple

it never seems to find anything unless you know it's there and go out of your way to expressly drop a virus onto the app

and now it keeps informing me that the DATs are upto date even tho it shows that the last one was mid november 2004 (about 3 updates ago)

and then there was the problem of it erasing 'good' info along with the bad

absolute rubbish imo

"Not too sure about this app.."

December 22, 2004  |  By Digitol3

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 041222

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have Tested this app grabing a known Virus from my ISP's Virus filter and allowing it to be downloaded into my mailbox (using MacOS X Mail) I then scanned the user/Library/Mail folder to see if it came up using Virex. NOTHING!!! What?? I then Tried Clamxav, (FREEEEE) And it spotted the virus very quickly. Now I am wondering, does VIREX not scan or "See" inside .mbox archives? If not that really is weak, and should be considered as many virus originate from mail.

"better information required"

September 11, 2004  |  By lallmen

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 040908

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The introduction in the package of this release indicates:
Product Release: 09/08/2004
DAT Version: 4390
Engine Version: 4240
Instead of the product version 040908 given by NAI the DAT Version, i.e. 4390 should be provided as this is the available info from the About menu in Virex.
Note: Virex 7.5 does not propose to the new DAT file through eUpdate (I use .mac Virex version and currently have DAT Version 4385)

"Nonsense"

September 10, 2004  |  By Giorgio Boccalari

 |  Version: Virex 7 DAT 040908

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I downloaded the DAT file and, as with every other file, checked it with Virex: "Your virus definitions were last updated on August 11, 2004, and appear to be up to date."
If it's already up to date then what's the need of a new version?

P.S. Only 1 star because I didn't forget v 7.5
