    Any idea if F prot 4 Web Scanner only available on IE?
    Haven't try the latest beta yet since the previous for me was unstable and keep having UI error as well high resource usage.

    Coming in October? Would be nice if NOD v3 has a beta out by then :D

    Edit: I hope they keep the 5 PC license intact. :D

    Just saw that test named AV SUPPORT TEST at av-comparatives.org

    I dont know how I missed that article but its very very good! IBK did really good job and I guess that he could not resist of sending that sample to AV vendors :D

    Good job IBK and good job Inspector!

    Hello all!

    I'm relatively new to the all security forum. Very interesting readings.
    To the point now: does anybody know hot to submit a (potential) false positive to Frisk? I have F-Prot 4 beta.

    Thanks to all.

    One of the things that I like about the 3.xx releases is the ability to easily install the components that you want/need on the fly. Will the new version have this ability? I would like to use F-Prot as my on-board backup scanner, and would certainly consider getting a new license for it if this is possible.

    I'm afraid not...at least the current beta doesn't have this feature. :doubt:
    And if you want it as back up scanner...I don't know if you can use it that way. On my PC I couldn't make it not to run on startup and it was always present in sys tray scanning my files on-access, even if I disabled its services and disabled it from startup.

    We have a "buildin" workaround for this: PM me here and send me the file if you are unsure about a file. :D

    You will have to get a key from the F-Prot website. It's painless. :D

    To all:

    In regards to the posting of individual snapshots on positive detections or missed ones....Wilders site policy on this is clear as noted in this post. With that being said....numerous posts have been removed alluded to in that policy.
