Ineffective software. Very poor customer support.

The software is very expensive given that the product is largely ineffective in preventing and removing viruses for Mac OS computers. Compounding the problem is the almost total lack of customer service support offered. It is impossible to chat with a technical representative if you have a software problem. If you have a problem you are required to e-mail the vendor and the responses are often "canned" and not at all helpful. Don't waste your money on this company. Apple should delete the software from the App Store.

I have been using it for years now.
It catches malware that other products fail to catch. I have it running on all my computers now and it works without a flaw.
I tried the free version and it catch some malware other products I was having trouble with and other malware removers could not detect. That is when I bought it. It has caught additional malware since I bought the pay version. The pay version scans continuously in the back ground, as the free version only scans when I select it to scan.
It does not slow the computer down at all.
I love it and would reccomend it to anyone.

This does absolutly nothing

Virus Scanner Plus puts on a good show but that’s all it is; a show. The first scan I ran with a different product found threats that Virus Scanner Plus had missed for the months that I have been running scans with it on my Mac. VIrus Scanner Plus produces no logs and has to be OK’d every time it launches. There is a little graphic that displays some kind of activity but …. I seriously doubt that any actual activity is taking place. LIke I said, I found threats on my Mac, common threats, that a different product founds right out of the box. I wish there was a way to get my money back becuase Virus Scanner Plus seems like a scam.
