10.4: A quick fix for CA's Threat Manager install script Install
The current release (r8.1) of this fine anti-virus software for Mac OS X has a problem in one of its startup scripts: it confuses Mac OS X 10.4.10 with Solaris 10, and the console will not open.

The default location for the script is /Library » Application Support » CA » SharedComponents » iTechnology » S99igateway. If you want to get the program working quickly (before the next update), comment out the check for Solaris 10 (lines 29-33). The ambiguous result is here:
SunVersion=`uname -a | awk '{print $3}' | cut -d . -f2`
I changed it to simply SunVersion="0", and the script than ran as expected.

If you ever need to do such thing on any antivirus/security solution: It is not a "Fine" software.

Intego Antivirus X4 (Virusbarrier) actually runs heuristic level nowadays and I have never needed to disable it or tweak anything.

Of course I don't say switch to it but as ex windows guy, I tell you the basic requirements for a commercial antivirus

1) non intrusive
2) Knows when to back up
3) Has heuristics support (e.g. watches what is going on instead of looking for sigs)
4) No need to disable while doing anything (read 1)

Also as any Antivirus hint/tip: Yes, there are people running antivirus against MS Office viruses, corparate policy requires or they are people who wants to be ahead of threats.

If you will _only_ check MS Office viruses or Windows viruses, if your company/organisation policy requires running Antivirus, I recommend ClamAv which is free (donation) ware.
