VirusBarrier by Intego carries with it two forms of antivirus protection: automatic and manual. We’re going to take a deeper look at this framework to see how each of those is operating. So here’s exactly what you can do.

Intego VirusBarrier provides automatic and real-time security as noted earlier. When you open the antivirus you will see a detailed report on this application’s status. VirusBarrier will let you know whether it has full disk access (to search the entire hard drive) and whether it allows real-time security and protected browsing. If you want to take a closer look at how automatic security works on the right side of the window you can click on ‘ Settings. ‘ This is where you can activate / disable the security in real time. And when malware is detected, there are three ways to choose what happens. 746 You can decide later by letting VirusBarrier ask you in each case, or by letting the application quarantine or the issue file fix. And there’s also a handy feature that will alert you through your email address. For additional options, click on the ‘ Virus Scanner ‘ button where you can choose which types of malware to recognize.

Depending on how much time you have and how far you want to go, there are two forms of scans you can do. Upon opening the program and clicking on the left sidebar, you can perform either of these scans: Fast Scan: This form of scan checks for malware in the most common places on your Mac and as such, it can be a quick way to remove common malware forms. A quick scan usually only takes you a couple of minutes. 747 Full Scan: A complete (deep) scan can also be done by VirusBarrier It takes more time to complete this sort of scan. It dives deep into your system however which means you should use this option at least once a month.
