    Hi All

    Its been awhile. Been busy as.

    Got a client that our work antivirus does not work and the install process for a mac is like coding the program from scratch.

    I just want to know what is the best free mac antivirus out there that we can install on her compare just to keep her safe?

    This is what I have seen here but is it still relevant?

    ==================

    Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware
    16. ClamAV

    One of the most popular open source security applications, ClamAV has been incorporated into many different products and has been called "the de facto standard for mail gateway scanning." The core program works on UNIX-based systems, but the website also offers information on Immunet, a ClamAV-based Windows solution that is available in both free and paid versions. Operating System: Linux, but front-ends and additional versions are available for other OSes.

    17. Clam Sentinel

    Clam Sentinel detects when new files have been added to your system and scans them with ClamWin, essentially adding real-time detection capabilities. Note that to use it you will need to install ClamWin as well. Operating System: Windows.

    18. ClamTk

    This variation on ClamAV adds an easy-to-use GUI to the popular anti-virus engine. Now ten years old, this is a mature project that is included in many Linux distributions. Operating System: Linux.

    19. ClamWin Free Antivirus

    This Windows-based version of ClamAV boasts more than 600,000 users. It offers a scanning scheduler, integration with Windows Explorer and Outlook, automatic downloads of the updated malware database and support for Windows 7 and 8. Operating System: Windows.

    20. P3Scan

    A full-transparent proxy server, P3Scan monitors both incoming and outgoing mail for malware and spam. It works with several anti-virus programs, including ClamAV, but you'll need to be fairly knowledgeable to use it. Operating System: Linux.

    21. Rootkit Hunter

    This no-frills tool scans for rootkits and other malware on Linux system. While it does not provide live or scheduled scanning, the Web site explains how to set up your system to scan daily. Operating System: Linux, Unix

    What would you guys recommend for her? The user is not an IT user just a basic end-user?

    Thanks
