Mac Malware Remover for Mac

Download.com Staff May 13, 2013

As viruses become more common on Mac systems, the number of tools for detecting and removing them has also increased. Mac Malware Remover for Mac is a simple program that effectively scans for a few known Mac viruses, but lacks the features of a full security program.

The program download completed as quickly as expected, as did the installation. Mac Malware Remover for Mac did require the administrator password for root access. The application did not have any instructions but was so rudimentary that they were not necessary. Technical support for updates was present. The program's main menu is well designed with detailed graphics. A single button starts the scan, which completed within five to 10 seconds. A display indicates whether the computer is infected or not. There are no other functions or features available. Unfortunately, the program only detects four viruses, which is a disappointment. There is also no active protection from future threats or other malware, which are features of other, more complete anti-virus applications.

While basically functional, Mac Malware Remover for Mac lacks many of the features of complete anti-virus programs, making it a poor option for those seeking comprehensive protection for their computers.

Developer's Description

If you are a parent you know of the MMR Shot (measles, mumps, and rubella) that all children in the USA are required to get. So why not give your Mac some MMR too. MacMalwareRemover (MMR) will detect and remove all current Trojans for the mac and will be updated to support new trojans as they come out. MMR has already helped many Mac users get rid of the threat of Flashback Trojans. Besides protecting Mac from Flashback Trojan, it could also detect and delete MacKontrol, Sabpab and Olyx from your Mac. And in each update, it will enable users to check and remove more Trojans. How do you check if your Mac is infected by Trojans? You will find that MMR is very easy to use. All you have to do is click "Start scan" and "Clean" (if needed), and then the whole process will be finished in seconds. If you feel that your Mac is infected by something, then you can choose MMR to check whether your Mac is infected by Trojan. This free antivirus app will keep updating to protect the security of your Mac
