    I just wrote them to compliment them on this latest version. Here is my letter in full.

    A while back, I purchased your internet security suite.

    I wasn't happy with it, and I believe I communicated that to you via email.

    I uninstalled it, and deleted the software from my PC.

    I decided yesterday to try your software again, I purchased the latest version.

    Man what a surprise. Its very fast, doesn't get in the way, seems to work perfect in every way. All my apps open without hesitation.

    This is just a word of encouragement, this latest version is great, love the UI.

    Keep up the good work, my hats off to you. Great Job.

    A couple yrs ago they released a beta that was very unusual in UI design, it was super lite... But not sure what happened to it. I think its still available for download and installation...It was very cool.

    Yes indeed, you are right. I thought this was the coolest. They should develop it...

    I just combined the Evorim Free Firewall with F-Secure to see how it would work (made Macrium BU image first) and still no slow downs.

    This has got to be the fastest IS Suite for me...Good Job F-Secure.

    Not sure how it would do against Ransom-ware, or any IS Suite would do, but that is a totally different issue.

    I believe they develop it but the development is going really slow :)

    DeepGuard is pretty good when it comes to ransomware protection. Of course, not 100℅ protection but better then average for sure.

    The last version i tested wasn`t compatible to ZAM and WFC. I was forced to uninstall both first. Is it still the same?

    Yea I'm going as light as I can. I understand layers, and don't necessarily disagree.

    But others say all the layers present more software that others then try to find weaknesses in, so they say a good all around solution can more easily keep things patched than 2-4 items, and possibly one of the solutions developers misses something which then exposes your system.

    opinions, opinions.

    Well, not really. I don't remember if I had even one FP and I was using F-Secure for a pretty long time.

    I can't agree :)

    Yes, some brand new .exe files that I know are freshest, are blocked (with a question what to do). But other than that, no FPs for me over a year or so.

    Regarding incompatibility - yes, it does check for those programs (including ZAM). I installed ZAL afterwards and they have been working together for quite some time. No issues to report.

    DeepGuard is rather effective against crypto malware.
    IIRC, crypto ransomware got thru FS only once. This is during all the time I've been testing the product here in MT.
