    Hi,

    What is F-PROT antivirus ? because it's new for me, Andy?

    F-Prot is the antivirus software originally from Frisk Software
    and it was very good with nearly daily updates .. i used it for
    more then 20 xears and unfo they finish their company and research
    now ..

    So, like many others, she is finished i believe due to small money
    involved and too much competiton. We liked it as it was not hindering
    and getting slow the PC when being in underground ..

    Let's see the new one if it works fine ;)

    ciao

    I think the only "free" anti-virus program is AVG, but the
    features are limited. All the other anti-virus programs are

    I've used several anti-virus programs over the years, including AVG,
    McAfee, Sophos, F-Prot, CA Internet Security, and now IObit...it has
    an anti-malware and anti-ransomware engine, and an additional database
    to protect from malware/ransomware. I also use several of their products
    on my computers.

    or

    I'm not sure...it has been so long since I used it.

    I have noted that each of these anti-virus programs are very
    "territorial", and they consider "competing anti-virus programs"
    as "an active threat" for the database files. However, I've noted
    that the virus utility from Sophos works well with these programs.
