    I will immediately buy a license,too -- but only if they give me a one dollar discount (because I only have one computer). :doubt:

    I am not sure that can be arranged, but nothing is impossible. Even without it though, F-Prot is one of the cheaper of the paid AV software out there. The licensing policy just makes it even sweeter for those with multiple systems, which is becoming much more common these days.

    I ran top-notch AV scanner "F-PROT Antivirus v6.0.9.0"

    Scanned files : 18333

    Infected objects : 0
    Disinfected objects : 0
    Quarantined files : 0

    Duration : 00:09:57

    No false positives. :)

    That isn't a very informative post.
    Was it supposed to detect anything?
    How large were the files?
    Was there any malware present? that should have been detected?

    It's the same old tune. He is once again boasting (indirectly) about his security set-up. Ad nauseum

    There is nothing to detect. I don't use scanners to keep my computer malware-free. I just run them one time to verify my solution, because that is the only way for me. F-PROT is one of the few ones, I didn't run yet.
    Until now all scanners are equal to me, because of this : 0 threats found.
    The only excitement are the false positives, but not with this one. :)

    Hmm. I was thinking of giving it a shot. Maybe I'd better wait.

    Hi,
    I don’t encounter any problems on my side; works very well.
    It's best to get an opinion by yourself, perhaps.

    and do you really think you can judge that based on a "bunch of malware samples"?

    There's no need to doubt F-PROT's detection rate; if it can maintain its current growth rate, it's a definite up-and-coming challenger to the top dogs when it comes to detection. The heuristics, in particular, are a work of art... though I think I may have spoke too soon when I said it doesn't produce the same freezes as NOD32 does when scanning heavily obfuscated files.

    杀毒效果非常好
    启发式也很强大
    但在中国
    有一些误杀


    Antivirus very good results
    Heuristic also very strong
    But in China
    Some of manslaughter

    I can assure you during development of f-prot no animals or humans were injured or harmed...

    谢谢指正

    因为中国的破解器非常多,类似于木马
    国情不同,结果也肯定不同


    我们会继续用它,对于个人,

    这个软件已经很不错。


    Thank you correction

    Because China's crack-a lot, like Trojan
    Different national conditions, and certainly different results


    We will continue to use it for personal,

    The software is already very good.

    Inspector Clouseau,

    Is F-Protect getting close to Avira and Nod32 in terms of heuristic detection? What about overall detection? Not asking for A is better than B analysis, but your own best guess as to the efficacy of F-Protect.

    I like the program, it runs fairly light, and am looking for any thoughts on the current state of detection.

    Good on you F-Prot for a solid product. You already have my support from the beta version performing so well. :thumb:

    Sure it doesn't have the extra bells and whistles others might have, but they don't have a product that's light on resources (even when scanning), thorough scan completing at lightning speed, and a low price.

    Program has support even on here from the very people who create it.

    What more do users want eh? ;)
