Version 3.8.2
Review by ECLostmen

2013 MacBook Safari attacked by PUP malware adware - I had a takeover of malware visiting an online weather site. What appeared to be a genuine Apple notification to upgrade my Adobe Flashplayer took over the browser page. I inadvertently clicked on download and a myriad of windows opened. By the time I was able to shut Safari down the damage was done. Everytime I went on my email pages and FB page, more popups took the pages over. I had AD Bloc active. It did not stop it. I tried all the remedies on Apple Forums. My Apple software updates are always current. Nothing worked. I searched App store for best rated and most used app for fixing the problem and found this one. Read the reviews. Decided to give it a try. I ran the Quick Scan, not really quick as I would define it, but with more than 200K files scanned, 33 male wares came up. 31 were able to be removed directly from the the scan report. 2 had to be removed manually by following the directions. Easy enough. Result, so far no malware pop ups on any of the sites mentioned. Update on initial removal. Within a day, pop ups returned. So I did a full deep scan. Found four more bugs that were hidden. Removed them. Since then, no problems. I think I should have done the Deep Scan first. Nice to have my Mac back!

Been using for several months - I’ve been in IT for over 40 years in development, db admin, data encryption and security protocols. I’ve had experience with several PC and Mac security bundles and have found this to be an extremely easy tool to keep almost anyone safe while using a browser. I run a quick scan every couple of days and a full scan every week and 95% of the time nothing is ever found, and the few times some adware or malware is found the full scan has been able to catch it and remover it freom my MacBook Pro. Some advice for those who read this don’t ever allow a program to update your Mac when you see a pop-up requesting the Admin password unless you are actually installing a program you have downloaded from a trusted source. Also if you think your PC or Mac is runnig slowly or taking too long to load a web page, do yourself a favor and run a full scan. Be safe when your on the internet and remember your the one who’s gut to believe when you think your machine is acting up.

Review by ABC-FL

Very Responsive and Helpful Customer Support - I added this app because I had malware in my Chrome browser that I was not able to remove. On recommendation, I added this app and it found 43 infected files and I romoved them, except for two files it was not able to remove. The program asked me to check to see if the problem was resolved and let them know if it was not. My Chrome malware was still causing new tabs to open in Yahoo (not my preferred browser and how I knew there was a problem) and I replied with the status. The very same day - on a Sunday, no less - I got a personal response from Antivirus Zap saying they had written a small tool that removes this adware directly, along with instructions. After following the instructions including re-scanning, I am now so happy to report that my computer is clean, including the hard to remove files! I am very impressed with this company, its employees, and their product - and very grateful for their help.

Review by squidnacious

DO NOT INSTALL - From the depth of my understanding and research, Antivirus Zap - Virus & Adware is a misleading app that i believe made up fake reviews to profit off people who don't know any better. I downloaded this app because my brand new MacBook Pro was running slow and crashing after opening certain applications. I looked in activity monitor and immediately knew something was using up too much Memory. I had a fake version of Java & Flash Player Adware that kept trying to get me to update every day i logged on right after downloading the update. Bits and pieces of 3rd party software i had improperly uninstalled were partially to blame for excessive cached files. No results showed up after i ran a quick-scan. Or a full scan. I included all folders which were unlikely to pose a threat, still nothing. I ran custom scans in application support, LaunchAgents, LaunchDaemons, Preferences, PreferencesPanes, StartupItems, etc, and no results were found. I give this app 1 star because it did not do what it said it does in the description. It did not detect or remove any malware, virus & adware as promised; I ended up having to manually remove everything by hand.

Review by GOGraphic

Tried to run 3 times, keeps crashing - I tried to run 3 times and it keeps crashing on me. Scans about 1,000,000 files and just disappears. Furthermore, before crashing, it finds a lot of files (8) by MacKeeper that were viruses, which is also a antivirus app. Not happy paying for this. Would like a refund but would try again after more bugs are worked out. BTW, I’m running OS 10.12.6
