||F-PROT Antivirus for Windows
Please note that version 6 of F-PROT Antivirus for Windows has been released. We recommend that all Home, Corporate and Mail Server users of
version 3 of F-PROT Antivirus for Windows upgrade their program to the newest version as soon as possible.
Included in F-PROT Antivirus for Windows is the Update Monitor. This component will check for
new virus signature files at regular intervals whenever your computer is connected to the Internet.
Information regarding the status of the
virus signature files
is displayed on
the main screen of F-PROT Antivirus. There are three types of status messages:
- "Virus signature files are up-to-date" : The virus signature files are the newest
signatures that are available from FRISK Software.
- "New virus signature files are available" : The computer is connected to the Internet
and the Update Monitor has found a newer version of the signatures on FRISK Software's servers. You need to
use the Updater component to download the latest virus signature files.
- "New virus signature files may be available" : The computer has not been connected
to the Internet for 3 consecutive days and the Update Monitor has not been able to scan for new signatures.
However, new virus signature files are issued very often and it is highly likely that new virus
signature files are available on FRISK Software's servers.
