    I'm considering F-Secure's Client Security Suite to protect the 2 PCs in my home office. F-Secure's AV seems to have a very good reputation, but other than what I can read on F-Secure's site, I haven't heard anything about Client Security's Firewall (nor the AS for that matter).

    Any feedback would be most appreciated. ~pv

    About the Spy/Adware protection (detection) I can be short, that's exellent... Why? Because it's using Ad-Aware engine and database...

    The firewall, I didn't see any in-depth reviews of it, but I've been using it for a couple years without any problems... That's all I can tell you :)

    Hey guys, thanks for your inputs - sounds pretty positive!

    StyleWarz, I recall that you are/were a user of McAfee's firewall. How would you compare F-Secure's firewall to McAfee's?

    Yes I've tested McAfee Desktop Firewall a couple months. I would rate them in the same category, both are easy to use, and won't drag ram with P2P programs. Both have their own pro's and con's.

    One thing I like about them both is their tight integration with the AV's, so they can used by blocking viruses calling outside, (MyDoom was such right?)...
