Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition

 

That's one free one, and of course there is the Free VirusBarrier (non realtime scanning) available in the Mac AppStore as well as the full blown VirusBarrier for what is it $69? And there is the ClamXav for free as well (also non realtime scanning.

 

I would have listed Symantec but I am seeing too many issues with Lion and Snow Leopard right now.

 

Any others?

MacKeeper has a built-in AV application but I'm not sure how robust it is, or how up-to-date it's kept. So I still prefer Sophos. It's kept my Mac free of viruses so far.

How long have you been using Sophos? Are you using the free home version? Do you use the realtime protection or turn that off and just scan on demand?

 

Is it hoggy? How much RAM on your Mac? Are you running Lion, Snow Leopard?

 

Gee whiz woman! You don't want much info do ya?!
