    Hi,

    I have Kav6 and outpost at the moment.I am very happy with he combo but I thought of trialing F-secure Is.I'm not sure I want to ditch OP tho so was wondering if I should uninstall both Kav and OP and instal the full f-secure suite
    or just uninstall kaspersky and install just the f-secure antivirus ?




    TIA

    IMHO, you would gain very little (in detection) by switching from KAV to F-secure. F-secure also uses quite a bit of system resources.

    if u rele want to try it tho, id go for the antivirus only and keep outpost pro.

    WSFuser,

    thanks for your input. Yes I just want to try it for a little while and see how it goes.Thing is I am using Kav 6.0.1.392 beta and its a bit heavy.It takes for ever (3mins) for the kav icon to show up in the tray icon after bootup.I could do without it.

    Other than that kav is very good.

    I think I am going to try f-secure and then go back to kav+op:D

    Hi Banshee,

    You may try KAV 6.0.1.401 pre-technical release. Build 392 is quite old. ;)

    Chubb,

    Thanks will do.After trying to make it work for 8 hrs today I got rid of F-secure.It slowed down my pc to a crawl. :eek: Could not connect to kaspersky ftp so I installed Nod32 again.Will try to get kav *.401 later on:p
