Issue: How to Uninstall VirusBarrier X8 from Mac OS X?

Hello. I would like to find out the right way to uninstall VirusBarrier X8. I have been using this program for a while, but I have decided to replace it with another antivirus program. Can you please explain how to remove VirusBarrier X8?

Solved Answer


It is not a secret that Mac computers are quite vulnerable to various computer threats at the moment. Therefore, Mac users look for applications that can secure their computers from virus attacks. VirusBarrier X8 (developed by Intego) is a legitimate anti-virus application, which can secure your Mac computer from Mac viruses, Unix viruses, Trojan horses, adware, scareware, keyloggers, worms and various other threats. This program automatically scans your computer from time to time and looks for possibly dangerous apps that need to be uninstalled. What is more, it also automatically scans iOS devices that you plug into your computer, so you can check whether your iPhone or iPad are free of viruses, too. This software guarantees a real-time protection; however, if it does not seem like the best Mac security software for you, you can remove it using this VirusBarrier X8 removal guide:
