Not an expert, but after you install FS and open a browser, you should get a popup advising you to install the FS extension for online protection, but not sure what or where parental controls are, perhaps in the vpn, but I rarely use the FS vpn.Is it necessary to install the browser extension for parental control?
I have also tried Emsisoft for a long time. Emsisoft slows down my PC extremely every time the signatures are updated. Firefox e.g. does not start at the moment or only partially. So only the outer frame of Firefox appears, but no web content. Several seconds then pass before the selected website finally appears. It can't be the internet connection because I have a fiber optic connection with 600 Mbps.Runs well on this PC but have 32 gig memory, I don't spend much time looking at the memory stats any-more, I like a quiet PC and if I hear the fans I know it's under load - At the moment I'm using Emsisoft & recently Emsisoft & F-Secure seem to run similar, I really like both.
Yep, from what all of us have posted the higher the Ram we have, the higher the WithSecure hosting service will be. It is the scanning core of F-Secure:I do not know that either. I suspect that F-Secure adjusts the memory usage to the available memory. I have 16GB of storage.
