Intego VirusBarrier X5 is the simple, fast and non-intrusive antivirus solution for Macintosh

- Simple -

VirusBarrier X5 is the easiest to use antivirus program for Macintosh. After you install it, it works in the background, keeping a close eye on your Mac, and verifies your files silently.

- Fast -

VirusBarrier X5 is fast and efficient. It does not slow down your Mac, and you can work normally while it’s active. Each time a file is created, opened or saved, VirusBarrier X5 checks the file to make sure it is safe.

- Non-intrusive -

VirusBarrier X5 is non-intrusive. It will not constantly ask you about “suspicious” activity, each time you want to install a program, nor will it generate endless false alarms. Once you have installed it, you probably won’t notice it’s there, unless it detects a virus and alerts you. In addition, you do not need to deactivate VirusBarrier X5 when installing new software, regardless of what the program’s installer or manual may say. VirusBarrier X5 can run all the time, in the background, protecting your Mac without you needing to worry about it.

that's a lot of money when ClamXav is free

Has a nice, reasonably intuitive interface. Seems to run nicely without taxing the system resources too much. Hasn't found any malware on my computer, but this is a Mac we're talking about, after all ;)

Can someone comment on if this app is any good or not?
