F-Secure Anti-Virus 2011
19 March 2011
Conclusion: F-Secure Anti-Virus 2011 scored well in my tests and even better in independent lab tests. Its interface is clear and simple, but its protection features are unduly complex. In particular, its "real-time" protection requires lengthy mini-scans and sometimes insists on rebooting when it's clearly not necessary. Its protection is good overall.
Pros: Simple, attractive UI. Few settings. Cloud-based and reputation-based detection. High scores from independent labs. Effective blocking of threats it detected. Good rootkit blocking.
Cons: Malware balked installation on one test system. Real-time protection requires lengthy mini-scans and some unnecessary restarts. Defeated by one active rootkit threat.
