where is fsav.exe in F-Secure Internet Security?



I've installed the F-Secure Internet Security 2016. I want to scan some folders periodically with ScheduleTask in windows. I've found that the "fsav.exe" is a command line tool for scan.

Where can i found "fsav.exe"!?

    This may not be much help, but I have a later (current beta) version of FS, on Windows 7, and in mine, it's in:


    C:\Program Files\fs protection\apps\ComputerSecurity\Anti-Virus


    As you have installed an older version of FSIS, the location may be different on your machine, and it may also vary according to which operating system you are using.


    But, it should be there somewhere.  Smiley Happy

    Sorry for my reply. I'm also only F-Secure user (their home solutions).

    The other steps to find "fsav.exe" are something like:


    -> Open file-system with Explorer and type "fsav.exe" under "search-bar".

    It should search for such executable (if persists).


    With my understanding: recent builds with renamed command-line scanner (not sure how it was with noted F-Secure IS build); If your experience about any guides 'how to use fsav.exe' but executable is not available -> maybe it is still possible to find renamed executable and re-use guides (if design is compatible still).
