I know what you're thinking. "Another antivirus program ... *yawn*". No, not at all. Most antivirus programs that I've tried are complicated to set up, run, and use. F-Prot is so easy to configure that most ten-year-olds could install it properly!

F-Prot's realtime protection monitors all files accessed by your system. If an infected, suspicious or malicious file is found, F-Prot will not allow you to access it. It also watches the files that you download, open, copy, etc.

With F-Prot's on-demand scanner you can scan your system for viruses, make multiple scan tasks in advanced mode, as well as check your current virus definition files and compare them with the latest available from Frisk.

F-Prot also includes an integrity checker which, with the help of user-created databases, tracks changes of files, folders or bootsectors.

And, if a virus renders Windows inoperable, F-Prot for DOS is included in F-Prot for Windows. As long as DOS is still operable, you can still disinfect your system.

The shareware version of F-Prot is time limited to 30 days. You can't update its virus definition files or scan network drives. I am highly impressed with F-Prot and recommend it highly.
