Hi guys, I have licence for both Avast premier and F-Secure Total Protection. I have Windows 10 PC with 4 GB RAM, 1TB HDD and i3 7th gen processor. Which one would be right for my PC? I tried one by one and both were running okay but i don't know which would be good for overall protection.

Avast have better performance. F-Secure delay many the aplications and the browser. Avast banking protection is top is you install Avast browser. Signatures is better Avast. Behavior blocker is better F-Secure. Sandbox i think F-Secure have not. My opinion is better Avast. Light and secure. And have all the features but without vpn

In my opinion Avast's behavior blocker has drastically improved over the time. It is much more active against fileless/JS/Java samples.
However, I also think FS is solid product. Just the features Avast offers (in the Premier) far exceed what FS offers. That is - if you're going to use them.
I would run both programs and see which one feels better in your particular system. I believe both are excellent in terms of protection.

On my system F-Secure is very heavy. Delay many the start of the aplications and the browser. Only the ram is low.Now i use Avast Pro. Realy is one of the lightest antivirus. Thanks for your comment .But the comment is for jackwilli . I choice Avast before many time :giggle::giggle:

What about consecutive run - still same delay?
Or you mean delay overall? I can not say for sure, but I feel FS is quite light on my systems. I've ran AVG IS and I could not feel real difference between these two...
Of course it could be some sort of conflict.

I want to specify a little more about pc use. This pc will be used by all family members (most of them are happy clickers), mostly for internet browsing so which of the two have better web protection.
