"Best anti-virus known to man. Customer since 1992"

July 10, 2013  |  By VernonDozer

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

+ Uses very little memory
+ Automatic Updates
+ Built-in Heuristics Testing (Patented)
+ Will detect viruses and clean them; even in Trial.
+ Not Bloatware
+ License covers 5 computers; trial is free and works exactly like the licensed version.

Cons

+ Not Free like AVG

Summary

This is the best damned anti-virus software ever created. It's the first that looks for "Virus-Like" code; which they patented. This means it will detect and attempt to clean viruses that haven't been discovered yet. Norton wishes they had the patents to this.

It's surprisingly light-weight. Even the real-time Scanner doesn't bog your computer down like McAfee, and Norton do.

It's also very reasonably priced, won several awards for detecting all known viruses. The thing is that few people have heard of it because it's actually developed in Iceland.

I've been using this software since the days I ran a Dos-based BBS. It always is able to detect the viruses, and most of the time, cleans them.

For Malware, I use "SpyBot Search and Destroy" Together, these two programs will meet your needs.

So, give it a try. The trial version isn't crippled, and they won't spam you.

"Non invasive Anti Virus"

June 10, 2012  |  By CanBooks

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

A computer Geek told me about F-Prot some years go. So I bought it and have used F-Prot for several years now, after growing tired of other anti-virus programs that tried to take over my computer. F-Prot sits quietly in the background and monitors everything, but you never see it! It often updates itself, and checks everything, flagging a few email viruses once in a while. I have found this software to be all I need, and only what I need.

Cons

Some say that this software doesn't catch the Trojans. I have used it for four years now, and once a year I run Sbybot to see what it has missed. Spybot usually finds one or two small things that F-Prot didn't find and deal with over the course of a year. So I am not too worried.

Summary

If you have a large family or lots of friends, buy the corporate version, and load it on all of your computers! After using all of the other major brands of anti-virus software over the last 20 years I have finally found the anti-software of my dreams. Load it, and leave it. Then get on with life! I took back control of my computer with F-Prot! I cannot say enough to praise them.

"Great Customer Support"

August 10, 2009

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

Great product for the price. Gets the job done without any hassle. I had an issue with subscription renewal and email response with solution was within hours of request.

Cons

website is a little confusing to navigate, but worth it for the product.

Summary

Great antivirus software for small business as you can cover multiple systems at a very inexpensive price. Software is easy to setup and easy to use. Customer support is quick with response and takes care of problems quickly.

"Best AntiVirus Software product on the market."

July 13, 2009  |  By wbenton

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

I've been using F-Prot for over 6 years now and would recommend it to anybody. It's lightweight because of it's small footprint which of course allows it to perform an entire disk scan without affecting your front-end processing.

Cons

There's nothing I don't like about it.

Summary

They offer a Windows and Linux/Unix version and pricing is very very well worth what you pay for. Rather than purchase 2 single-user licenses, it's cheaper to buy the 10 license corporate pack!

When viruses are spreading across the internet, I've seen them update the signature files up to 5 times a day! Quite impressive!

"Extremely good! Light, fast and absolutely dependable"

September 01, 2008  |  By feigur

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

F-PROT is efficient in weeding out the trojans, backdoors or whatever you seem to have that is wreaking havoc on your computer. It uses heuristics so it can (and DOES!) prevent the bad stuff from settling in. One of the best picks I've made ever!

Cons

Configuration is rather limited, but nothing for average computer-ers to worry about.

"To markwcy"

July 02, 2008  |  By derricksidhu

 |  Version: F-Prot Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.1

Pros

The antivirus did not detect or find any viruses is simply because your PC has got no viruses. As simple as one plus one equals to two. TQ.
