    Don't use Mac Anti Virus. Just. Don't. (unless you frequently share files with other PCs you might contaminate) – Alexander - Reinstate Monica Jun 26 '13 at 16:37

If the Apps are installed from the Mac App Store, you can use a Finder Spotlight search and the 'Category' attribute.

Select Other… under the attribute dropdown menu and search for & check the attribute 'Category'.

Search Attribute: Category

Then do a search using that attribute.

Searching Applications for Category: Utilities

Antivirus apps from the Mac App Store are classed as 'Utilities'
