Works flawlessly with cygwin and any other software we have, on 
- a tower PC with XP Pro SP3 (Pentium 4)
- a laptop with Vista home premium SP1 (core 2 duo) however with UAC
- and two other laptops
I can even leave the scanning engine running while installing other
software. Never had conflicts with it. Tech Support is very responsive.
Disadvantage: F-Prot slows down startup of a few programs (most
significant: Opera browser). Slowdown is much less on Vista. F-Prot are
working on it and already had some success.
