Does the new f-secure internet security/antivirus work well with Windows XP Pro 64 bits ?

What is the impact on system speed ?


Thank you.

    > Windows XP Pro 64 bits


    In fact, there is no such thing as Windows XP 64-bit. That OS is actually a re-tuned Windows 2003 Server OS with a fake version screen. Microsoft produced it as an ugly hack, because their Vista release was much delayed.


    Unofficially, I have run FSAV for Servers 9.00 on "WinXP64" for a test environment.


    I don't know if the newer FSAV ESS 9.20 would still install on XP-64? May be worth a try technically speaking, but the problem with legality of licencing needs to be solved for production environment use!

    Hello ErnstOtto,

    Only the 32 bit version of Windows XP is supported. However for Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 platforms both 32 bit and 64 bit versions are supported.
