I have also had very good experiences with this beta project. I am very interested to know;
did FS Protection find hacker-related infections?
It is really hard to say, but before downloading you can submit an URL sample to our lab.
Which will analyze the website for you,
iIt will tell you if the website is safe, and if we recommend visting it.
What version of ESS are you using ? Was this an upgrade ?
Try the two suggestions below to resolve this issue.
F-Secure ID PROTECTION – an easy-to-use service that helps minimize the risks of identity theft.
Before starting the F-Secure beta program, I had other software protections but they always seemed to fail me. I always seemed to get a virus or something every so often. It was horrible. But ever since using F-Secure beta software, my computer has been clean. A couple times a virus tried to enter, but F-Secure was on it & removed it before causing any problems. & also warns of shady sites to not enter. I love this program!!! I tell everyone I know about it. I also really like the Banking Protection it provides. It gives me a piece of mind with all the craziness that goes on online. 100 stars & thumbs up for FS-Protection.
I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).
Maybe for such a technical trouble - can be useful to contact their direct Support channel (for example, web chat). Since Support Agents with an ability to provide remote help, diagnostics and safely propose a solution.
But just as own tries to find a workaround: did you mean that it was one time crash? Or each time - crashes?
If each time after a (full?) scan and try to "handle threats" there are crashes - then could you manually observe what is findings? I mean listed items. Can you check what is it, where and maybe then to think whether is it real malicious items and whether it is possible to remove them manually from system.
Since such information can be with critical data - maybe you can to provide detection names and redacted filepath / file name of detected items? It can be helpful - if you are not sure about further steps. This way - someone can suggest something about.
Please check this post and do the same as it asked for.
Or you may contact with Support Team via Chat or Phone here so this issue can be observed further.
