I've been using F-Prot at home since before Windows. I've only had one infection in that time that it couldn't handle (BitDefender boot CD took that one out). It's not as flashy as Norton (which I wouldn't trust anyway since Symantec was hacked), and it's not as complicated to configure as McAfee (which we ditched at work in favor of MBAM+MSE), but it's much smaller, updated often, simple to use, and it works. I suspect that a lot of the "antivirus comparison" websites are paid for by one or more of the antivirus vendors (not Frisk), which is why F-Prot often is ranked far below "the leaders". The home license is great at $29/yr.

I've used this for years on two oldish DELL laptops due to its very small memory footprint. An excellent program. It also keeps improving.

Terrible!
Downloaded trial version,first exc downloaded from Frisk was corrupt.
Second worked fine,but update hung at about sixty percent.
Had to kill update with task manager and start over.
This time update would not even open.
Decided to remove program and damn uninstal utility stuck also!
Downloaded so called "removal tool" from F-prot,did nothing at all.
Ended up going into safe mode to remove program and regedit to remove legacy keys.

Maybe its just my machine but I had a colon full of of F-Prot.
Back to Avira!

Vista support is still "in beta" but I've been using it on Vista 32-bit for ages now without any problems.

Good detection rates and small system footprint. Beats McAfee or Norton every day of the week!

To read the most informative reviews, go to "Read All Reviews". In 10,000 downloads many good ones. I used F-Prot on XP computors for years with good results. Fast, effecient, not a resource hog...Try it and you may agree its a good deal at $29 to protect up to five computors.

Still no mention on their website regarding support for VISTA. Perhaps they have forgotten VISTA went RTM late November and it's now June.

F-Prot used to be my favorite AV, since DOS days. Small, lightweight and fast it served me well all these years, until now...

Now the bad things; Despite the fact some users like Vista or not, it's the current OS version thus Frisk as a serious company should make F-Prot v6 compatible with it.
They were developing v6 for more than two years therefore they had all the time to make it work with Vista.

When Frisk first released version 6 of F-prot, they promised Vista support "before Vista official release". Four months later, they are still not able to offer anything but excuses. At the same time, most competitive AV software, including some freeware, are fully Vista compatible...

Very disappointing!

This is for people who want to scan fast. It's definitely the fastest of all AVs. As for not working with Vista, who the hell wants Vista. I have Ultimate and it's a piece of crap.

version 6.0.6.0 has a nasty bug in the Outlook plugin, meaning that all outgoing email gets deleted. make sure you upgrade to 6.0.6.1 asap!!

marked down due to this bug (the first showstopper in 5 years of use for me) and lack of 64bit or vista

Kaspersky is defenetly the best solution right now. And Vista supporting.
