    "f-prot - best kept secret"

    April 15, 2014   |   By dkidzni3

    Version: F-PROT Antivirus for Windows 6.0.9.6

    Pros

    Great program. Easy and effective. Have used it for almost 15 years now (wow, that went fast!)

    Cons

    I don't have any problems with it.

    Summary

    Highly recommend. Reasonably priced for corporations/businesses.

    "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.
