Hi Everyone:

I have just obtained a free license for F-Secure Internet Security 2015 and wanted your advice/opinions on whether F-Secure is any good. I've seen reviews online e.g., The PC Security Channel and it did an excellent job in protecting the system, detection on new samples was excellent. Would you choose and use F-Secure?

Tony :)

Off topic, where did you get your free serial from? Thanks!

F-secure is a good product that can be compare to other players, with their own signature Deepguard as behavior blocker. However some may concern about the performance issue that's quite heavy.

Yes it's good. Even though it has a lot of processes I still found it not to drag my system down. Do note that if you uninstall it, you will have lots and lots of left over registry entries(over 500 on my machine) and folders.

The only registry cleaner I trust is Power Tools Lite free. But I just used Revo Uninstaller portable free, and used the advanced option to uninstall F-Secure. Do note that if you search the registry there will still be some registry keys left especially in Legacy, but I just leave them. It's easy to break operating system messing with registry keys, so I don't recommend doing it unless you know 100% that it's ok to delete.

F Secure is very good.F-Secure's DeepGuard system monitors active processes and flags suspicious behavior, including attempts by suspect programs to access the Internet. Blockt maliciouse websites,has Banking protection and Facebook privacy checking.
It is very light on system and it doesn't slow down your PC.

I'm kinda mixed on F-Secure. Most of the computers at the school I work for have F-Secure, yet almost EVERY sample I found got through F-Secure. Thankfully, most of them got detected as soon as I tried to upload it or put it on my USB to upload it at home.

did you run the samples or just scan them? Running the samples would give better results

I didn't run them, since I wanted to avoid infecting school pc's. Also, on the worst infected computers I set the scan to scan the computer each morning before classes start.
