    Anti Virus

    Recently decided to review this matter on my 808 and after a bit of research discovered that the much favored NetQin V5 seems not to be sanctioned by Nokia for the 808 Pureview. I know that the phone is shipped with F-Secure but that is a paid for facility and I prefer a free one.

    Any advice here?

    Cheers

    Who would write a virus today for a zombie OS ? I love it but it's still dead.

    LOL good point and one I tend to agree with. I always favour the 'older' software options in some cases, for that very reason. [PC's etc] Anyway I loaded up F-Secure just out of curiosity and it does seem to be useable but only for 30 days then payment needed so I'll ditch it then.

    Cheers

    I uninstalled F-Secure immediately. Waste of space on C: drive.
