Process "F-Secure Freedome UI" (Freedome.exe) still running after turning Freedome off

I noticed that the process "F-Secure Freedome UI" (Freedome.exe) used 5-7% CPU. I don't use Freedome so I turned it off from its icon in the system tray and it disappeared from there.

However, that process is still there, making my CPU busy. How do I turn it off completely?

I use Freedome from time to time so I don't want to remove it entirely from my computer.

    Hi @PerAnders

    From your F-Secure Freedome VPN settings, you can disable the option "Freedome starts automatically when you restart your computer".

    I tried to reproduced this issue but with the above option turned off and I did not see "F-Secure Freedome UI" running on my Wins 10 processes.

    Open Freedome, go to Settings and turn off that option. Restart PC and see if this helps.

    Thanks for trying to reproduce the error.

    But the fact is, it was all my fault - not Freedome.

    I had just installed my new computer, doing all the setup on an administrator account. Then I created and switch to a standard account. The following days I only used the standard account (of course) but didn't realize that the adm account was still logged on and running and on that adm account, Freedome had put up a "welcome" box and that was the one running Freedome UI.

    When I closed that one, no more mysterious Freedome app running!

    So, thanks, but I was all my fault.

    I did also find that disable option inside Freedome.
