Can Mac Viruses Effect Speed & Performance?

mac virus effect performanceWe don’t need to know the nitty gritty technical details to understand that all forms of Mac malware is bad news for your prized computer.

Some forms of Mac malware, such as the feared Trojan viruses ad spyware, are so evil they strive to take down your entire system – sometimes beyond repair. Or worse… they can secretly plant nosy code into your hard drive to spy on your every move. They note down all your personal and financial information to bring back to a third party criminal mastermind, which can obviously lead to major devastation.

There are also other, lighter forms of viruses and infections. Ones that take enjoyment out of disrupting your Mac and causing it to dramatically run slow.

Whatever form of Mac malware comes your way you want to protect your system in the best possible way and stay 100% safe and secure.

If you have noticed that your once aggressive speed monster MacBook is acting more like a pop bellied pig lazy in sunny mud, loving nothing more than ignoring your commands, a Mac virus may be behind it.

There is only one solution for this and that is to get a powerful Mac AntiVirus protection software onboard! Unless you are a coding genius and have a lot of free time to painstaking comb through every bit of code on your machine, a dedicated softwares is the best answer.

There are countless Mac virus combating apps around, but as the aim is to protect your prize, not to mention expensive Apple Mac and keep it out of harms way, it pays to do a little research before you download.

If you believe your Mac has already crossed paths with a bug and is showing signs of struggle, you will be please to know that you can remedy this.

Leading Mac virus scan programs can not only hunt down and effectively eradicate the infections, they can also repair any damaged caused. Enabling you to get your beloved happy computer back once more.

They should also come equipped with a fully loaded, Mac virus database that is updated daily. This is crucial. Staggeringly there are as many as 30,000 new Apple targeted infections discovered each day. So it is imperative that you have an Antivirus software than can identify and effectively safeguard against these newbies as well as the old ones kicking about.

In my opinion there are three top Mac Antivirus software players – Norton, Kaspersky and Zeobits Mackeeper.

Norton and Kaspersky protection are originally renowned for warning off Microsoft Window viruses, but have recently turned their expertise to MacBooks. Although they do not have a long history of Mac protection or even have a relationship to Apple products what so ever, however you can trust that they will do a great job. The only down side is their rather steep price tags. With Kaspersky coming in at a roughly $59.95 per year and Norton a rather dry mouthed $79.99 annual fee.

Saving the best for last, the third option is my favourite – ZeoBits Multi award winning MacKeeper.

Nicknamed ‘911 for Mac’ maintenance, Mackeepers impressive 16 app toolbox comes with a highly praise Mac Antivirus program that guarantees to stay on track of all new and old viruses and to always securely protect your cherished computer.

Tagged at $39,95 one-off lifetime license for all 16 apps, this runs rings around it competitors for value for money.
