Weird re-subscription pricing, but excellent program
I used this last year, the renewal came up for 1 PC at £29. Far too much money.

Looking for Which recommended software on Amazon, I found the FULL F-Secure 2012 for 3 PC's was....£9.95 !!!
Just installed it, simple, asking company why they have no customer loyalty scheme.In use, its almost invisible, it does the job very well.

(Expert user with a lot of Internet usage and 20 years PC Internet experience)

There are no silly "What do you want to do with this?" messages to confuse ordinary users (like Zone Alarm does so badly)
System impact - unnoticeable - unlike Norton and McAfee, which give you the experience of wearing concrete overshoes.

Would I recommend it?YES, I did buy another years copy after all, so it must be good to satisfy me,
some other programs are asking for a purchase price of £40 - don't pay it - the performance of F-secure is the same or much better, as tested by the Consumers Organisation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Price 15 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase
At £9 odd for three computers that's around £3 per PC! I've used F-Secure for many years and had no significant problems. It's a comprehensive, practical and extremely effective program for Internet security. Moreover it was given 5 stars (for total protection) in a recent (Dec 2011) Computer Shopper review. What else can I say ... almost something for next to nothing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Secure But Does It Offer Enough? 29 Sept. 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
From F-Secure comes a 1 year / 3 PC internet security suite, a security solution offering complete protection for Windows computer.

Installation of the software was easy, quick and straightforward and thankfully actually using and configuring the software remained easy. The program integrates perfectly with Windows, and is easily controlled. Once installation is complete it is necessary to validate your subscription online before you have receive program and definitions updates. This was again quick and easy, consuming only a few minutes to complete. The entire package is very user friendly and also comes with a six language electronic manual to ensure ease.

The only disadvantage to the software is the fact that it does consume a lot of system resources when conducting a full network scan, slowing down everything to a snails pace, but this is a relativity small price to pay to ensure a virus and spyware free environment. It's also worth pointing out that while running in the back ground the program has very little impact on system resources.

While there isn't a great deal wrong with the software, I don't feel it offers any truly unique and useful tools or utilities to make it standout from the crowd. While the protection is offers is without a doubt excellent - there are plenty of alternatives - some cheaper, some more expensive.

3.0 out of 5 stars F-Secure...not a big name but... 26 July 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
...they make good software. This program installed easily, activated on 3 devices with no major problems, and doesn't hog system resources. Speed is on a par with other brands of security software like Kaspersky. It also seems just as configurable as that product, which is good to see as I like to be able to let my quirky system operate without being stopped by permission requests (passwords etc). Parental controls also appear easy to use, just remember as always to keep the Administrator password away from your kids.

F-Secure seem to have good customer support (I can't personally recommend this as I haven't needed to use it yet), so if like me you like the comfort of a 'big name' brand, I don't think you need to worry in this case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relatively Simple Security Product 22 Feb. 2012
By Richard Kelly TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
F-Secure Internet Security 2012 is a whole bundle of Firewall/Child Locks/Anti Virus/Personal Protection software all thrown into one somple to use package. This version covers 3 PCs for 12 months and I currently have it installed on two Windows 7 laptops (an old 32 bit one and a faster 64 bit one).

I'll start with the install process.

You need an internet connection active in order to run the install so you don't really need to supplied CD at all, you could download the installer from the F-Secure web site and do it that way if you wish. After the installer had finished downloading the software from the internet it decided that I had some incompatible software installed (I had Trend Security suite installed) and it prompted me to remove it manually. After doing this the 32 bit machine behaved perfectly, it started up I logged in and after the install had completed everything was working fine. The 64 bit one installed and then after a reboot it decided that the Anti Virus component wasn't going to work, I tried several reboots and eventually it started (don't be surprised if it doesn't start immediately after the install as the AV component is downloaded after the rest of the install, but that wasn't my problem).

Once the product was working it is very simple to manage - simple Child controls on the internet (site types, browsing times etc), simple scheduled AV scans, and a firewall that tells you when something is blocked. You need access to a user account with administrative permissions to enable blocked site etc, so ensure that any children are logging in as themselves to stop them from accessing inapropriate material.

It also looks to be a product that consumes minimal amounts of CPU and memory resources and as an IT professional I am reasonably impressed by the package so far.
