Is F-secure running on my computer?

I just subscribed to F-secure. I'd like to see what it is doing, including scans it has run and malware it has blocked. I'd also like to schedule a scan. But I don't see an option for either of those features when I log in.

I'd also like to create a quick link for my laptop home screen. I don't see an option for that either.

    Hello,

    I am also only an F-Secure user. For a proper discussion - a little more information is needed. For example, which F-Secure solution is being used. I suppose F-Secure SAFE (or F-Secure TOTAL). And platform (for exampe, Windows).

    I just subscribed to F-secure. 

    Make sure F-Secure SAFE is installed on your device.

     I'd like to see what it is doing, including scans it has run and malware it has blocked. I'd also like to schedule a scan. But I don't see an option for either of those features when I log in.

    If you are trying to get this information on My F-Secure Portal. Then, I think this feature is not supported yet.

    But you can find out all this information locally (in the system of your device). Via F-Secure SAFE interface and settings.

    For 'scans it has run' and 'malware is has blocked' - related UI parts with statistics and last events. It is also possible to use "Recent Events" list - Event history: Viewing recent events for the product | SAFE | Latest | F-Secure User Guides

    For 'schedule a scan' - there is a feature called - Scheduled scanning: Scheduling scans | SAFE | Latest | F-Secure User Guides

    I'd also like to create a quick link for my laptop home screen. I don't see an option for that either.

    Is it something like Windows desktop logo? Or, again, as part of website's / system feature for 'metro mode' (or so things).

    Thanks!
