|What issues might arise regarding F-PROT Antivirus and the Security Center in Windows XP SP2?|
The Windows Security Center will be aware that you have F-PROT Antivirus installed. F-PROT Antivirus will communicate with the Windows Security Center and you will be informed if new virus signature files are available or if any of the vital components of F-PROT Antivirus have, for some reason, been disabled. The Windows Security Center itself will not turn off any part of F-PROT Antivirus nor hamper its capabilities. If you enable the powerful firewall that comes with the Windows Security Center you will, however, have to allow F-PROT Antivirus to connect to the Internet to retreive new virus signature files.
For general information, see About the Windows Security Center in Windows XP.Do I need F-PROT Antivirus when I have set up the Windows Security Center?
Definitely! The Windows Security Center does have a firewall and alerts you if the installed antivirus product is out-of-date but the Security Center has no antivirus capability itself. In fact, if you remove F-PROT Antivirus from your system, the Windows Security Center will alert you that your computer is no longer secure.How do I know that my computer is secure?
We recommend that you always keep your copy of F-PROT Antivirus up-to-date. When you have downloaded and installed Service Pack 2 it will monitor the status of your system.
We also recommend that you enable the firewall in Windows XP SP2. For further information, see Accessing the firewall in Windows XP.See also:
