What about trust and quality of discovering viruses in computers.

Are there different possibilities for companies discovering viruses in home computers?

How comparing their work?


Can I have several companies doing the same thing?

    Hello @strol44

    Welcome to the F-Secure Community. Thank you for your post.

    I'd like to clarify whether you have both F-Secure Internet Security and McAfee installed on the same device.

    If you don't, it's possible that the notification you're seeing is coming from your browsing history, cache, or cookies. Clearing these may make the notification disappear.

    However, if you do have both installed, having multiple antivirus software on the same machine can cause conflicts as they might detect each other as potential threats.

    For more information on this, you can check this link: Can I have more than one security product installed on my device? - F-Secure Community.

    Are there different possibilities for companies discovering viruses in home computers?

    Each antivirus company may have a different virus database.

    Can I have several companies doing the same thing?

    Yes, you can submit the sample.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance. We're here to help.

    Thank you, and have a good day.

    Hello,

    You can try to use their (your) local web-page:

    At least, it will lead you to Online Guides. And, maybe, webchat-support will be in your locale. Alternatively, you can choose a phone-call option.
