f-secure client securiy 9.11 settings

dear sirs,

I'd like to know the best setting for my product. I had the version 8 and it was possible to set the type pf protection: high, normal and low. In the present version I'm not able to find similar settings. I installed this version two days ago and I noted that the computer performance decreased respect to the previous version.

Many thanks for your help

    Hello peruetti,


    Yes, we removed those profiles from the virus protection.

    (Note: Firewall still has profiles)


    The protection is very high with the default settings, there is no need to change the defaults unless you have a very specific reason to do so in your environment.

    However it is strange to hear that the performance of version 8 was better on your machine.


    Version 9 is much faster and lighter than version 8 ever was.


    Which operating system do you use?

    What is the CPU speed and memory size?

    Are there other security products installed?


    Best regards,

    thanks a lot for your reply.

    My Operating System is XP SP3, the computer is a dell latitude d620 (dual core) with 3 gb of ram. I haven't other security product.

    May I ask you something about the Rescue CD?

    On that machine you should not feel the client security at all.

    Could you please create a FSDIAG (start - all programs - f-secure - support tool) and submit it to our support?

    Please describe the performance issues in as much detail as possible when opening your request.

    Feel free to ask your question about the rescue CD.

    Though, could you open a new topic for your question?

    This will help others who might have the same question to find the thread more easily.


    Best regards,
