Last Customer Reviews: Intego vs Windows Defender

Claire
last year I picked this anti virus for my mac I'm using it every week to run scans and never turn off my protection. there were no issues so far Intego is easy to use and quite fast.
Barb
they say that macs do not need an antivirus... I bet they do! I have almoist lost all my files a while ago. For that reason I had to buy a good antivirus for my Mac book. I did a research, asked my friend (he's in IT business) and he told me that Intego antivirus might be the best choice... well, i got this antivirus - no issues. it is great!
Holy
I still believe that Intego is one of the best antiviruses out there for my iMac. I mean come on... they even designed it to fit the interface of iOS! I got it about 3 months ago.... straight away it caught 4 warms and a spy cookie!!! can you imagine?

I just completed my upgrade of the Windows Defender anti-virus. I must say, it is cool, but I can hardly tell the difference between the versions.. Good firewall service but not so user-friendly interface.
joseph
Windows Defender will immediately scan any external device that is placed on your computer, it is a nice idea, but then I think the developer should upgrade the software to identify devices that it has previously scanned, so it doesn’t keep scanning a device more than once daily. My own thoughts tho…the firewall service is also commendable.

I am so happy to have this software. Free and I have no viruses! However, my laptop overheats from time to time...
