[F-Secure on Surface Pro 3] High CPU-Usage when scanning for threats!



when scanning for threats CPU usage is sometimes reaching over 90 %. I installed F-Secure Internet Security (2015) on my Surface Pro 3 (Win8Pro). Sometimes it's even reaching 100 %.


Is that normal?

Scan Option choosed: Complete Scan

    It's 'normal' for the Desktop version of the Windows product. It's designed to use maximum available resources in order to run the scan in the quickest possible time. I might consider it safe to assume, therefore, that the tablet version would behave similarly.

    I'm asking since some other Security Suites that I used reached about 30-40 % CPU-Usage.

    If I'm just running a "Quick-Scan", CPU usage is about 30 %.
