App Store Reviews
Had been look for app that would simly check files on the computer, first quick scan found 38 infected files. Wpuld be nice if there was some way to say why the file(s) were bad and needed to be removed
It seems to enjoy its work.
This is my first line of defense. The program seems wonderful, esp. at the price. I wish them well.
Nice, sensitive scanner
It’s finding some very nasty malware in webarchives. Other scanners I used I think were not sensitive enough to find them. I had a real-time security package that warned frequently that something was trying to turn my webcam on, and it kept finding something strange when I scanned, but I couldn’t figure how it kept getting back on my system. The webarchives are all coming from a site considered safe and very mainstream but nonetheless I never trusted — but it has free stuff I need. I don’t have the real-time protection anymore…that company has some bugs to fix…but I think my computer runs better. This virus zapper is a nice, sensitive scanner, and I’d rather err on the side of caution and it be overly sensitive if there is any possibility of malware.
I was impressed with the program. It helped get rid of a program that took control of my MacBook which almost prevented me from using my computer until I signed up for the program. Easy to use.
Finds stuff unlike other programs
I have various other apps to find viruses but this app went deeper than the others and found lots of phishing type stuff that was deep in my email and even alerted me to apps that had adware in them. 5 STARS!
First time user. Easy. Found and removed phishing emails. Good reassurance especially for the price.
Didn’t believe till I tried it
My computer was acting up a little. I used another program M…REB…TS to scan for malware and got a clean bill of health. I still kept having problems, so I decided to take the plunge for the 4.99. I ran it, which kind of takes a while. But, the wait was well worth it. It found 16 files infected. I was surprised but I looked at the details for thier location on my HD and sure enough there they were. I would recommend this program based on my experience. Befroe this, I was one of those who believed viruses were only for PC’s. Now I plan to run this weekly.
It works and they have great support
I had the myShopCoupon virus, which was actually embedded in a hidden file. After a short email to Anti Virus Zap Support and they walked me through the fix. Reasonably priced and excellent support.
Found Many Adware Issues!!! Total Happiness!!!
the price is right and it was fast and easy...
I purchased this product, but was skeptical. I’d used a couple other programs but after purchasing this it found 255 files and removed them. My Mac seems to be running a lot faster so I’m thankful.
I had lot of infected files. It took almost an hour to go through all files and I had to remove about 120 infected files manually. This seems like a great product.
i recommewnd this app for any person who need to get the mac cleaned. I kept using this product for few weeks and today morning I found only one infected file. I was able to get rid of it soon. This product works great. It worked again. Had lot of viruses and all got rid of. This is a great product.
Antivirus Zap works great! I am very impressed. I highly recommend Antivirus Zap!
The app fopund a phishing file related to Mail
The app fopund a phishing file related to Mail. I was having trouble with what appeared to be some on my contact list sending a hello and maybe there was other attached to it. I will watch to see if that problem is resolved but I was suspicious this was the case. In any case, Antivirus Zap found one creeped in file.
Worked as advertised
Found 8 viruses
Yesterday, I had my adblock off for some reason and ran into something funky on the web that had me worried my MacBook might have contracted a virus. I downloaded Anti-virus Zap yesterday and it found 8 viruses, including malware attached to the Adobe Flash.dmg that I downloaded to update. Contrary to popular belief, Macs can get viruses that affect performance and functionality. This inexpensive program worked really well. I highly recommend it. Also, lesson learned about not using an adblock 100% of the time.
Got rid of adware and malware instantly; buy without thinking!
Works pretty good.
I did a full scan while I had Firefox, Activity Monitor, Audirvana Plus (with no plugins). All ran with no glitches and never high MEM or CPU.
Also no unexplainable (via Little Snitch) out-going connections.
It does phone home and seems to update its virus tables, but no more.
It did flag two “Fishing or phishing?” email files burried way deep in my folderlist and had me confirm if it was OK to get rid of them.
I don’t know where it got rid of them to, but it didn’t seem to be the Trash email folder or the Waste Basket.
Quick. Under two hours.
On a iMac 27 L2015, 8GMem, 2Tb Fusion HD, 3.3Ghz 2c I5. And as always, YMMV.
So, Works Great! No apparant hanky-panky. Works for me! Two Thumbs Up.
AntiVirus Zap - Virus & Adware
My Mac desktop was locking out and needed to be restarted. I purchased AntiVirus Zap - Virus & Adware and it ran the scan and found 38 threats. With the push of button it cleared them all up. No more locking out on this computer. Great Buy for the money.
Does a big job for a small price
Kept getting prompts that my system was infected and to install Mac Sweeper. Pop ups were occuring more frequently. Checked the app store and decided for the price to give this app a try. Took a couple of hours to scan my entire system but identified all the hiding areas for the adware. Had to locate the files using finder and then manually deleted them. Right now the systems looks good. Very happy with the product. Will scan again later today.
A small app that lives up to its billing and small price.
We did a quick scan and the app found 30 infections, deeply buried in our core. I am impressed. Malwarebytes was saying there were none.
79 Threats Removed!
I bought this based on the other reviews. My MacBook Pro is quite old and has not been scanned. I had lots of adware popping up and MacClean that I could not Uninstall. The fake Adobe update popped up constantly. AntiVirus Zap was easy to use. It found 17 threats in the first few minutes. By bedtime, it was up to 43. This morning 79! Most was Adware. It could be removed using select all and the remove button on the screen. About 10 had to be removed by clicking search icon and moving to the trash from Finder. But super simple either way.
The only question I have is that a few times when I checked the screen after over an hour of scanning, it seemed to be paused. Then I would scroll down with my trackpad and the scanned files number would quickly count up and more threats would be revealed. I’ll contact their support and see what that was.
Whenever I used Google Chrome as a browser, Yahoo kept creeping in and taking over. Yahoo was not anywhere in my preferences, browsers, or anywhere that I could find. I first did the Quick scan for viruses with this app. Yahoo remained there. I then did the Browser scan for bugs, and it’s gone!!!! It was one tiny little bug that I never would have found. As of right now it’s gone. Hopefully, it’ll stay gone. Yahoo makes me crazy! Thanks Antivirus Zap!
I would recommend this to everyone.
So I have used other antimalware apps such as Malwarebytes which I thought was very good. However after just installing and doing a normal scan, this app is finding far more issues. I am very impressed and would recommend this app highly just with my first impressions. The price is fantastic especially when you only pay the one time purchase instead of doing costly subscriptions.
AAA wonderful app 👍
so far so good offers the same as the other yearly subscriptions at this low cost. you want be disappointed and you can start it to come on with your computer at start up or not. the bug looks nasty but hey thats what it removes 💙❤️💜💛 it stays in the bar at top while you can hide it from your dock… highly recommended !!! 🙃
Works great, half price!!
Just ran a scan of my MacBook. It didn’t really take too long to do a full scan; about 1 hour. Found a dozen threats and removed them. Seems to have worked very well.
