If Avast free, for MAC is anything like the pc version, it should be great. On my pc, I ran Windows 7, ($$$#0#$$$) used little system resources, and constantly updated itself. Its user interface is excellent, and is easily controllable. The scans are fast, and how it handles an infected file, or suspicious file, is clear, straightforward.

Sophos, on the other hand, I am throwing away. VERY slow on large scans, and NOT clear on what it does. I had found a world clock installed, and it said it was suspicious, but when I asked what it was, had nothing to say. Once deleted, (I think), it was not only NOT in the log, but i found no reference to it's cleaning. The scans take large system resources, and did not stop when I asked it to. I had to restart my machine. It did this each time I started a scan.

I am putting ($$$#0#$$$) on my MAC. I'll be back.
