Re: Installation on PC with Window XP

Hello,

 

Sorry for my reply.

 

How I can to understand: on current time -> all up-to-dated F-Secure solutions do not support Windows XP.

For F-Secure AV you also able to re-check requirements there:

 https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/anti-virus#technical-details

 

Mainly this is based on next points:

 

--> This Windows already do not supported by Microsoft; and as result -there is too much "trouble-situation" to provide any proper security.

 

--> Also F-Secure AV with recent updates also do not able properly work with Windows XP (based already on using specific system-features, which  work just with Windows Vista and later).

 

As additional information under Knowledgebase/How-To:

Also about Windows Vista, which also will be soon "not supported":
