    Highlight the Eicar string on the link provided, right click and copy. Paste into notepad and save it to your desktop. Name it anything.

    Right click the file on your desktop and select scan for viruses and spyware.

    If you are using another security program, it may be blocking the string.

    That Scanner Manager 32-bit module sucks the resources on my machine. 130meg of ram, and lots of cpu time for just that one module alone.

    Great and generous offer, but why or why do they only allow a limited opportunity to install it...Ok, I can understand an install by date, but what if you need to reinstall the OS?...Doesn't the regular licence have a countdown timer built in, checked while installing updates?....Why not free offer versions...It seems if you have a catastrophic failure you lose this free offer AV!

    If you go into your subscriptions folder, you will see your account key number.

    When I click on show subscription key it reads:

    ==================================================

    Subscription Key is not available.

    License #1: Installed on this computer Expires 28/07/14

    ==================================================

    I have an account id and device id.....But not the licence key needed if I reinstalled.



    I guess I would need to contact them with that info and hope for the best.

    They've embedded the serial code in to the build, so my guess is that they could quite easily stop further activations (for that code) once the promo has ended.

    oh ,man! now i remember why i never used f-secure much. it's because it has too many updates to download, it is even putting my 2mbps connection through a good workout.

    In subscriptions, look under identity codes. The account ID number is all you need in case your rig crashes and you need to re-install F-Secure.

    Update: It seems, the promo is intended to certain region and now they have blocked the link to international users.

    ....So, If above link redirects to F-secure homepage, then download the installer from this direct download link.

    The promotion will expire on July 31,2013.......

    Would anyone care to explain how this would compare to say the Norton suite I get from Comcast for free? Better to go with F-Secure or stick with Norton? I have no experience with F-Secure at all.

    I don't care about av-comparatives, i'd like to have the opinions of members here that have used/tested these products.
