I have been considering paid F-Secure for a while, but I've not seen many on the forum use it. Are there any users of it here? Any comments on it?

Golden have you decided to try F-Secure yet.
If you do could you keep us posted on how well it works with Windows 7?

The only negative I see is the price. It's for one year, one PC, not like Norton, which I use, 3 PCs for a year. I'm not recommending Norton because there's so many here against it.

I do read several security reviews by different magazines and independent organizations such as AV Test.org. MSE is always at the bottom, or very close to it. F-Secure is often on the top or 2nd.

I've downloaded a 30 day trial and will put it through its paces and post back any observations here.

It is my advice to all the senior members here. With your common sense and knowledge of computers, the free MSE and a little common sense is all that is needed.

This is true the computer user has to work with there security (ie .. staying away from bad sites) sensible surfing plays a big part of computer security. I'm still testing roboscan internet security and up to now I'm very pleased with it
