How to install F-Secure Anti-Virus on a Windows computer.


Before you start installing F-Secure Anti-Virus, make sure that:

  • Your Windows is up-to-date (Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 SP1).
  • You have uninstalled incompatible software(s) from another vendor (Other anti-virus programs).
  • You are logged on to your computer with administrative rights.
  • You have an internet connection.
  1. Go to the Download F-Secure Products page.
  2. Select F-Secure Anti-Virus from the list.
  3. Click Download for Windows.
  4. Depending on your browser:
    • The installer file downloads automatically; or
    • You are asked to save the file. If prompted, click Save file.
  5. Press Ctrl+J on your keyboard to open the download folder and find the file.
  6. Double-click the installer file (F-SecureNetworkInstaller.exe) to run it.
  7. When prompted, type in your subscription key to continue the installation.
    • If all of the license seats are used, the installation may prompt you to purchase more licenses. Insert a new code or select Reuse a license seat to release a license from previous installation. Reuse is usually the preferred option.
Allow the product to complete the installation. The installation takes a minute or so (depending on your Internet connection speed), and once installed, your computer is protected.
