"it does the job"

May 17, 2009  |  By lavinio66

 |  Version: F-Secure Anti-Virus 2009

Pros

It is a reasonable anti virus.The interface is plain but easy to use.I

Cons

The bootup and shutdown speed are quite long as so are the scans.The interface will not win any art prizes.It lets a few minor nasties through which superantispyware deals with.The firwall is quite weak and should at least be two way.

Summary

It does the job but is quite expensive.It needs a better firewall.I think the anti spy and malware needs to be beefed up.I think there are better solutions out there.

"It has been working good."

January 28, 2009  |  By khelben1979

 |  Version: F-Secure Anti-Virus 2009

Pros

This is a pretty good anti-virus program, although.. I personally like Sophos better. It has been working stable and it's easy to use.

Cons

This is bad product in comparison to what other companys can offer today year 2009. If you buy it you will get dissipointed.

Summary

Well... It's easy to use, it works, it is a serious product but it get badly beaten up by the competition from other companys in my opinion. You'll be better off with Sophos.

"Terrible!!"

January 03, 2009  |  By davidlee099

 |  Version: F-Secure Anti-Virus 2009

Pros

What's there to like about this?

Cons

This anti-virus software is totally messed up. It slows down your system and consumes great amounts of system resources. The scanner just gets stuck at like 52349 forever and takes quite a while to scan.

Summary

Maybe it's just not for Windows Vista, or it's not for anyone.

"Fast, easy to use and safe."

December 22, 2008  |  By Hans_Harro

 |  Version: F-Secure Anti-Virus 2009

Pros

I prefere F-Secure Internet Security 2009 because it integrates all security features I need: anti spam, anti spyware, anti phishing, anti virus, firewall, child-proof lock. It makes protection easy and understandable. Last but not least: it's fast!

Cons

Some of the messages have wrong translations. It is funny to read, but not very professional.

Summary

I use the child-proof lock even though I have no children. It is well-known that sex pages are infected with malware very often - that's why I try not to lose my way and enter such a site. So, it's good to protect children, but also to protect adults. The setup of this program is very easy: while using my pc I have been asked when a program tried to enter the internet. After I approved which program I know and which I don't wont to go online F-Secure Internet Security 2009 functions in the background. There was no complicated setup wizard nor need to read a manual. All in all this security suite is discreet, doesn't slow down my pc and understandable. That's why I never want to use different security programs anymore. One for all is comfortable and more secure, because the security features are more integrated.
