    On my Windows 7 machine, the update installed without a reboot request, but when I go to Settings >  Ransomware Protection, and click Protected folders, I get the screen(s) below:

     

    Untitled-3.png

    Clicking OK results in both of those screens disappearing, so it is not actually possible to access any of the tabs.  I haven't rebooted yet, as I'm in the middle of other stuff, but will report back when I've done so.

     

    On my Windows 10 machine, I was prompted for a reboot after the upgrade, but I didn't actually check it afterwards.  Again, will report back when I've done so.

    It's still the same after a reboot - bug report submitted.  Smiley Happy

    Hello,

     

    We are working on fixing this, but as a quick workaround, you can delete (or rename) spapi32.dll in the program files "fs protection\apps\ComputerSecurity\Anti-Virus" folder. This problem occurs only in computers that have this file present from old beta releases.

     

    BR, Urmas

  • Anyone else having issues with update downloads. I am getting about 0.1-0.3 mbps (bits) while downloading the updates after fresh installation of fs protection.

    Hello,

     

    Sorry for my feedback.

    Did you mean F-Secure own updates like Aquarius (?!). If yes -> I'm not sure what was the speed of downloading before and currently (I did not check it) - but it was always too small speed compared to potential speed (which are also small).

    BUT -> I also did notice MAYBE that some of my recent fresh installations (maybe not only with TP209) was with much more time for downloading/installing Aquarius. While other part of installation looks more speedy. I thought about some other overload during my tries.

    But maybe your experience about something else? So, sorry for my feedback!

  • Yes, I meant the aquarious update, downloading it took a while almost a hour & half.

    So, maybe I noticed such situation too (one-time) previously. But I tried to re-check where it was -> and maybe there already another clean installations (or was all OK) and logs are cleared.

     

    I also tried to perform clean installation with certain network and some device. The result is next:

    -> Installation takes ten minutes (after start network installer). maybe one/two minutes more.

    -> Aquarius is downloaded with expected time (to me). And installed too.

    Network speed usage was 5.7Mbps in general (with temporary switch-tries from 3.1Mbps to 11Mbps).

    At background  there was some other temporary network connections (with related bandwidth).

    Network speed of this device was 50Mbps (or around this).


    I think that your situation is OK for report to beta-portal. Additionally, I'm not sure about potential impact like "downloading Aquarius is canceled during process" (does it re-download all of Aquarius databases from first; or there is cache? With my local tries -> it was kind of 'cache'-meanings - but unclear how it works); "another things like Windows Update or potential network usage" (probably I did notice such situation -> when system was with tries to update Windows also). Or even any other reasons - because, partly, I thought about such concern recently too (potential situation that Aquarius-databases is downloading pretty long than expected) - but.. not today.

     

    SORRY for my feedback! Smiley Sad

     

    Thanks!

  • Thanks for replying. It was a clean install, and no other program was utilizing the bandwidth I checked with both resource monitor and task manager. I have already submitted a bug report for this (& got a reply that it was forwarded to concerned persons).
