    There should be no problems;

    Take a look at a recent thread here at Wilders;

    And here is an excellent, detailed article about the program;

    Overall F-Prot for DOS is an excellent choice as a backup scanner to your main AV.

    Correct. F-Prot for DOS has no "on access" scanning.

    F-Prot for dos has no resident protection but F-Prot for Windows does and will work nicely on just about any machine. :)
