MacScan is a spyware blocker which protects your system from spywares, key loggers and many more. The spyware blockers helps to prevent the pop ups that are frustrating for Internet users. There are many companies in the market that produce fake spyware blockers which are harmful to your system. Still there are some spyware blockers like Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Google that can block and demolish spyware from a system successfully.
MacScan is one of such anti-spyware meant for Mac OS X. MacScan is able to detect, segregate and remove the program which could damage your system. It costs about $29.99 and they have thirty days free demo version as well. In addition with removing the spyware, it cleanses your Web browser later on. Usually web sites keep a track of visits by resulting cookies on your Mac and some browser store a history list of sites visited on you Mac. MacScan removes such details on browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Netscape. It analyses Apple-related threats, the DNS Changer Trojan horse and it detects and destroys spyware.
When you install MacScan you have to give your Mac user password to run the program. It has a backlist of more than 8000 cookies and once the scan is complete, it detects the spyware on your Mac and gives you the option to remove it or not. If you want to remove the spyware permanently then click on the “delete”. Your Mac will be free from the spyware and other bugs.
But the main problem with this program is that there is no estimation for the time required to scan your Mac as it depends on the size of the files stored. MacScan shows a barber pole which just spin rather than a progress bar.
MacScan is a perfect solution for those people who are looking purely for spyware protection.
