clamxav iconEarlier an antivirus which i shared was iAntivirus for mac which was a good one for scanning for viruses and removing them out of your mac, and one more such similar antivirus which can help keep your mac clean from viruses, spyware etc. Its ClamXav antivirus for Mac OS X.

Usually the viruses count for mac os is negligible but its not advised to take risk, so taking regular precautions and checking for viruses is needed. ClamXav antivirus is a simple but strong antivirus program that can check for viruses and help you remove them. You can scan individual files, or entire folders and then set a quarantine folder for the infected files to be rested at.

    All very tantalizing and tempting to fetch the free iAntiVirus but after 15 minutes of staring at every corner of the page I can’t find a download button.
    Why is it hidden like some treasure trove?
    I’ve tried Registering with the site but that didn’t find me a download so eventually I gave up and fetched it from somewhere else.

  2. I heard that the virus doesn’t work with in the apple software they cant harm it as in linux, but if is not so then the antivirus is a must ant the above mentioned antivirus is really nice to have by all apple users
