License terms for multiple PC's + scan tips

NikK Posts: 935 Rock Star

I've really tried searching for this first but can't find any info at all, so I'll try here now:


Are there any restrictions for the 3 PC usage version? I mean like do they have to share external IP / be on the same LAN, have the same ISP etc?

If not, I guess I can get the 3 PC license and for example let my parents and brother use the other 2 licenses?


PS. I recently scanned an old computer with MSE and it found nothing(after 7 hours!). Then searched it with F-Secure and it found 9 viruses!!! That's why I'm asking. No one should ever have to use Microsoft's free anti-virus products Smiley Sad



The trick though(a tip for all readers) to really find ALL malware is to change manual scan settings in F-secure to:

  •  Uncheck - Search only known file types
  •  Check - Search compressed files
  •  Check - Use advanced heuristics

The search will take much longer but it's worth it, otherwise you can miss virus detection!!
