Recommended antivirus for mac users

Removed a spyware from my mac.
Thought macs were not at all vulnerable towards viruses and malware.
Boy, was I wrong!
This antivirus is, in my opinion, the best malware scanning utility for mac as of now.

A must have

Firstly I was mistaken for a long time that Macs are not prone to viruses, they are.

Also for a free app this is a must have.

I suspected there was a trojan that I got via a download and right enough this one caught it in a few seconds.

It does try to update the signatures before each scan so if you cancel it it will go straight to scanning, but its a great service the company offers.

Updates are horrible

The malware update takes forever and ever, and doesnt get completed as well. What is an antivirus that doesnt make it easier to update the signatures?? Its crap.
