"Ok product, but best when run alongside something else."

July 24, 2013  |  By tjraptis

 |  Version: F-PROT Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.6

Pros

Good heuristics engines, both do their job
Ok detection
Very light on system rescources
Non-intrusive
Cheap
Simple interface

Cons

Detection could be better
Heuristics occasionally produce false-positives

Summary

While F-Prot is an ok product, it's best that you run it alongside another product, such as malwarebytes. In my experience in virus removal and research, the pair work very well together

"You are better off with no anti-virus software"

May 10, 2013  |  By McBride82

 |  Version: F-PROT Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.6

Pros

it is fast

Cons

doesn't seem to detect any viruses or mal-ware. It lets everything pass through.

Summary

You are better of having no anti-virus instead of this junk! Why? Because it gives you false security!
I'm a computer technician, I have been getting computers that are soaked with viruses and malware, those computers had F-Prot. F-Prot did not detect anything while other Anti-Virus softwares detected hundreds of threats.

"F-PROT Failed to PROTect"

May 26, 2012  |  By JayGullen

 |  Version: F-PROT Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.6

Pros

Simple GUI
Good Scanning speed
Very low CPU usage

Cons

Relies heavily on Signatures
No heuristic/behavioral engine

Summary

Versus zero day malware testing it performed poorly. Detecting 3/32. Two of those was detected during full scanning. They said it has a heuristic engine but I never was notified by the AV or prompted to block or allow anything. Needs to improve dramatically in this area if it does has one.

BOTTOMLINE: Try something else if you're considering on buying an AV.

"Superb value"

March 30, 2012  |  By plymplan

 |  Version: F-PROT Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.6

Pros

Their business 10-computers-for-$50 license cannot be beat. We have used their product on all our office computers for a number of years.

Cons

Perhaps not as user friendly an interface as other products but it is unobtrusive and uses little computer resources.
