    ClamXav is a good free, open-source-based AV for the Mac. Mind you, I don't leave it running all the time - there's really no need.

    Every time I think "I suppose I ought to run a scan, just to be on the safe side" I have to Google its name. It's quicker than looking through my Applications folder until I recognise it

      Sophos is free for the Mac too.

        That one managed to fill my system disk.

        I think it found some rather large tar.gz files and tried to expand them.

        Oops

            I tried AVG but the free one doesn't have web protection, ended up with Avast. Got it on mac & phone now too. Worth having as it busted Vuze trying to install some spyware bar on the mac.

              I recommend you the Avast for the free antivirus, and the kaspersky for the paid antivirus.

                  I have not used an antivirus software in 10 yrs.

                  Maybe I am boring and don't visit dodgy websites.

                  I use a Mac ....... and also use Virtual machine for my downloads

                    Or maybe the crown princess latifa 3rd is using your PC to spam the rest of us, how would you know if you don't ever check it.
