Hello, can I use FS Protection on my main system?
No doubt you can install, In the times I had the FS Protection I always found him very stable, but you have to be aware that it is a beta version, and with this may appear errors at any time. @Lord Ami can respond better, since he has a long experience with F-Secure.

Thanks for mentioning me (grabbed my attention ;)).

I've been running the beta for well over a year and I would consider it extremely stable. Nothing game-breaking to report - it's been working solid and stable for me.
Being beta program makes it prone to errors/instability and it could even (theoretically) destroy your Windows. But that is far too extreme - FS seems to be on the safe side, releasing stable enough builds. I would recommend... but be sure to have failsafe/backups in case something would happen. Again, over a year - all good, no BOSDs or similar.
