Is F-Secure actually still worth it?
A couple of days ago I formatted my PC and reinstalled all the vital programs assuming F-Secure is one of them. The problem is that I like to play a lot of games and F-Secure tends to make that VERY difficult. It blocks all my gaming services such as Steam and uPlay and it really does get to me. F-Secure is so ridiculously strict that your computer can barely even connect to the internet. I know if I switch the firewall off that it solves the problem but that leaves me open to threats. The way my computer got messed up last time is that I had to allow all internet traffic for any program to make a solid connection.
Can someone help me cause at this stage I'm just thinking about unistalling it and using a free anti virus. F-Secure just causes too many problems and can be VERY stubborn to work with.
well, if you press "deny" when firewall pops up messages, it will deny.
if you're using latest version of internet security, then F-Secure has no firewall at all...
It uses Windows Firewall to block traffic.
