From the Manufacturer

Symantec’s Norton AntiVirus 9.0 for Macintosh is the world’s most trusted antivirus solution for Macintosh systems. It automatically removes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses from email attachments, Internet downloads, and other sources— without interrupting your work. Now it can even detect and repair infections within file archives. Not sure whether a file is infected? Norton AntiVirus places suspicious files in a special quarantine area of your hard drive to protect your system until you can find out more about them. Not only does Norton AntiVirus 9.0 for Macintosh detect Macintosh and macro viruses, it even finds and removes PC viruses to ensure that you don’t spread infections to friends and colleagues. Symantec’s exclusive LiveUpdate technology helps protect against the latest threats by automatically checking for new virus definitions and downloading them to your computer over the Internet. LiveUpdate now downloads only the definitions you don’t yet have, so updates are small, fast, and efficient. Viruses and other malicious programs are an unfortunate fact of computer life. Don’t leave your valuable data vulnerable a minute longer. Protect it today with Norton AntiVirus for Macintosh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay Away January 1, 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
As a long-time satisfied NAV user on the PC side I decided to go with NAV 9 for mac with my new iBook. I have tried running the scan three times. The first two I cancelled after 3 hours without completion. The scan runs slowly but just about grinds to a halt when scanning the python files (.pyc,.pyo, etc.). I am now in the middle of my third try and after 2 1/2 hours it is still going. I think it is shameful that Symantec would release this product as compatible with Panther when it clearly is not. The suggestions I have gotten from Symantec tech support have been worthless!

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken (Un)installation January 25, 2004
I couldn't be more disappointed. I have installed it successfully twice in the past, but my latest effort has been nothing but disappointment. I have been working on this for a number of hours, and continually get stuck on the NAV Update, where it successfully retrieves the various update files, but can't apply the last "Virus Def" (or at least couldn't Process it in 8 hours...). Worse, is that the product refuses all attempts to uninstall itself either (Unknown errors...). So, I'm left with a newly built machine, with a non-functioning NAV which won't successfully install nor uninstall. I am quickly reaching a point where I will need to wipe this disk and reinstall OSX from stratch. An anti-virus program should not be written so poorly to have to require this...

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Money October 25, 2004
I have this installed on my iBook, and will be buying it for my work machines. It works well, and I have had no problems with it.

Despite what other reviewers have said, there was a time when viruses for the Mac were extremely prevalent and were more common that PC ones. It is also beneficial to have the protection and notification when you work in a mixed PC/Mac environment.
