    Hello all,

    I m newbie on this forum,
    i have some question about F-Secure product, how do you thing about F-Secure.

    And if compare F-Secure with other AV (Kaspersky, MCAfee, Norton, Bit Defender, Trend Micro) what the strong point of F-Secure.

    I need your opinion about this product.

    Thank You all
    Best regard

    i love f-secure and have had a few licences with them in the past,

    their detection is fantastic as it uses kasperskys engine and is designed well.

    heuristics: it uses its own plus norman sandbox's
    HIPS: norman sandbox of course which i think worked a treat

    its a bit more 'system heavy' than kaspersky, but i do prefer it over kaspersky, and it is cheaper too. (no offers)

    hope that helps, you wont be dissappointed with protection that f-secure offers, you will be secure :)

    p.s.

    but dont forget to give the dr.web a try :)

    you will be secure with f-secure but you will hate having the whole army with you when ever you use the pc to even just go to the safest locations:D .
    try dr web nod32 and kaspersky and bitdefender.

    Yes, it can be a tad heavy at times but it is a lot better than Norton and McAfee IS's. I have tried Kaspersky but I like FS's "feel" better. That is why it is great to have choices, you can choose anything that rocks your boat :)

    yes f-secure feels alot more secure, also... if you have a decent machine, no suite or antivirus should matter with usage etc etc

    What the hell is with all the software lately!?!!? Whatever i install it has to force some freakin crappy localized version which i DON'T WANT for crying out loud. I just installed ENGLISH F-Secure 2007 and what i got? A freakin slovenian localized junk. Geez i hate this crap. Of course there are no settings to change the language to english and translation is a complete rubbish. Why that doesn't surprise me at all...

    Ok, managed to trash the thing by deleting Localized folder. However, some parts are still in slovenian language grrrrr.

    Is F-Secure 2007 really using KAV+Norman ? About message seems to say so. Looks like they polled it off nicely. It's fast and doesn't really use much resources. Apart from stupid localization i really like it.

    Yes, Norman is part of DeepGuard along with Adaware and Blacklight (for rootkit detection) as my understanding goes.
