Is F-Secure SAFE alone enough ?

redvetredvet Posts: 40 Explorer

Another post recently raised the point of F-Secure Safe conflicting with installation of Malwarebytes.

Does this indicate that FSS requires the addition of an Anti-Malware programme to really make it safe ?

I have run a few different Internet Security suites to provide cover for online banking in particular but never considered adding further protection.  Do I need to do this ?

Much appreciate advices, thanks.

    Thanks for the useful response Simon. I am probably returning to FS when the Emisoft trial I have running expires.

    Out of curiosity, how did you find Emsisoft?

    I am no expert so not sure I can offer enough information.  As you probably have guessed my main concern for cover has been for online banking and with Emisoft it was the first time I have departed from the visual 'bank safe addition' as provided by FSS, KIS, Bitdefender etc.  I am having absolutely no problem with Emisoft, its light on my system and I have received super advice  about browser and add-ons from Emisoft. If I don't continue after the trial it will only be to have the bank safe back again, though many posts elsewhere say it is just a cosmetic thing.

    I believe they do a stand-alone anti-malware product, as well as the full Internet Security Suite, so I was wondering if the anti malware product would run alongside F-Secure as a possible replacement for Malwarebytes, should the current conflict issues not be resolved soon.


    Has anyone else tried this combination?

    They also have Emisoft Emergency Malware Kit 12 free.
