    PC Tools' iAntiVirus - any good?
    A friend sent me info on PC Tools' "iAntiVirus" for Macs. Does anyone use it and/or have any information to share on it? It looks like "AVG for Macs" since it has both a free version and one that's around $30 a year. I would use the free version since I don't need business, 24/7 support and phone support. I'll appreciate any info. TIA.

    As it stands there is no viri out there to affect your Mac. Have a read of The Official Mac Antivirus and Firewall FAQ.
    It was written a while ago but still pertains today. You wont get one single member telling you to use a AV for your Mac.
    No need and a HUGE resource hog ....

    Hope it helps some

    No, I'm not running Windows. The only MS program I run is MS Office for Mac 2008.

    As TattooedMac suggested, stay away from it, and check out that link he added!

    I agree with the "never use antivirus software on OS X". Using it there is all bad with no good coming from it. But on a windows partition through boocamp of the other hand, treat that as you would a windows PC.
