"It found malware that others missed"5.0 starson by mitchd123
Pros: My cousin's computer was very infected with Malware, Adware, and other nasty stuff. Brand new MacAfee found only two. I installed Norton 2009 which found over 20 nasty programs running and cleaned them.
Cons: Norton wasn't able to clean them all on the first scan, clean, and reboot. However a second scan, cleaning and reboot did the trick. What was not good was the fact that Norton didn't tell you it was still infected after the first reboot.
Summary: The list of nasty stuff that Norton removed was impressive. I tried MacAfee, and a number of other web programs like HiJackthis, SDfix, and Catchme. Norton however did the trick and found and successfully removed, MANY ugly programs including:
Adware Mirar, several Trogan Horses, Trogan.Vundo, Garntet, Spyguard 2008, Backdoor Graybird, Downloader, and MANY more. I used to thing all Virus scans were the same. Not any more. What was even more impressive was it did them all with the 15 day trial license. I really like the fact they help you out without forcing you to pay up front. A clean computer was proof the product was worth it. I was just about ready to re-install the OS, but Norton saved me.
