What's new in Version 3.10
Better Than Dreaming My Mac is Virus-Proof
My first PC was a Radio Shack Model 3. I used it to calculate bond issues and analyze hydroelectric projects income streams. It was totally safe from viuses, hacking, spoofs, etc. I just took my floppy disk out when I was not using it and the machine was immediately brain dead. Then came the internet.
Since then, safety is either dreamand or a constant plan of defense. No virus protection is perfect, but moderate protection is better than none. I’ve used Mac for almost twenty years now. I found the big anti-virus packages, origninally designed for MS, are just too intrusive. Virus Scanner Plus is pretty basic and relatively easy to live with. It does unobtrusively keep me informed of checks and changes.
An example of living-with this virus scanner: I found it scanning my manual backup drive. This is a long process for a TB of data. And, the drive's data is entirely backup of data that has already been continuouslry scanned, encrupted and kept on a locked-away manual drive. So, I just switch virus scanning off during my weekly manual backup. One tap turns the scanning off for my weekly manual backup. Not perfect, but no big deal. (Virus Scanner Plus does not scan my daily backup drive which are automatically done via encrupted, passworded LAN.)
