This Wiki article lists the system requirements for installing and using Securepoint Antivirus Pro.

Last adaption: 05.2021


New:

  • Discontinuation of support for Windows® versions whose mainstream support has expired.
  • Microsoft has changed the certificate signature requirements for antivirus software effective April 2021. The required certificates are not compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. These changed requirements apply to any antivirus products that meet Microsoft's guidelines and are not under our control.


  • Operating systems

  • 'Securepoint Anitvirus Pro only supports operating systems currently supported by Microsoft until the end of mainstream support.
    This excludes both extended support and systems with paid Extended Security Updates (ESU).
    For these and older systems, product updates (which rely on valid Microsoft certificates) and thus up-to-date virus signatures cannot be guaranteed.
    Even if operation should be possible, this is not supported by us. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
