 F-Secure 2022 Antivirus Review
A Brief Intro to F-Secure Antivirus:
F-Secure is a Finnish company founded in 1988. It was the first company to develop heuristic scanners and anti-rootkit technologies for antivirus products. In 2015, it acquired some companies called nSense and MWR InfoSecurity.
F-Secure announced a separate enterprise division and it is named "withsecure."

PcsoftMag tested results are shown below.
  • Web Protection [blocks 95% of malware threats, phishing websites, and websites with injected malicious scripts].
  • It blocks about 40-50% of unwanted websites, adware, malicious ads, and scam pop-ups from running in the background when we accidentally click on any green button, like trick buttons, or in any space around infected websites.
CONS:
  • Web protection should improve and they should develop their own firewall rather than use the Windows firewall.
  • I have faced some BSOD issues with F-Secure Safe.
  • F-Secure Gatekeeper (fsulgk.sys) caused it.(When I installed F-Safe, it detected μTorrent as a PUP and deleted it after a few hours, and within a few seconds, my Windows 10 crashed with BSOD).
  • It blocks only 30% of fake or fraudulent websites.
  • No application control
  • F-Secure has fewer features compared with other antivirus software.
