I am using Windows 10 on my computer.
The version of F-secure Key is 4.9.71.
I tried to download F-Secure KEY and to install it under my Windows 10.
I downloaded it from: https://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/key
Installed F-Secure KEY version is "4.9.135"; And there is available option (F-Secure KEY main user interface -> Settings-tab on the left panel -> General-part of Settings tab -> Startup and Exit Behaviour submenu -> uncheck Start KEY when system starts).
Does this option is available with your installation? If not - maybe possible to try update or install "4.9.135"-build;
If yes - does it helpful to use it? If not - maybe good to doublecheck that KEY starts automatically even if you "Quit" (rightclick KEY traylogo and quit) before restart/shutdown system; and if so (to 'quit' before restart is not helpful) - good to troubleshoot further and maybe to contact their official support channels (chat as example). Otherwise, tune up Windows settings.
There are some points which good to know:
->> what is your system; does it Windows? and does it Windows 10?
->> what is your F-Secure KEY version?
My ask is based on next things:
-- recent F-Secure KEY builds with option (under Settings) for disabling autorun.
possible to download latest available F-Secure KEY build from its webpage:
-- Windows 10 with some kind of feature when launched application is 'saved' even after restart.
So, good to close F-Secure KEY (by rightclick F-Secure KEY tray picture and choose "Quit/Close") before system restart.
In addition, Windows 10 with specific feature for "shutdown" system. When it works not as real shutdown or even restart. Thus, noted 'some kind of feature' is valid for shutdown / turn on too. As result, good to close F-Secure KEY before system restart or shutdown system.
Does your experience is about something like this? And does some workarounds/explanation are useful to you?
