  • Thanks for your reply Gary.

    I tried these steps but the result is the same.

    When i give a print job such as a Word document a popup will come with the words waiting for respons of the minolta.

    It looks like the job is first scanned and the dealy is about 20 seconds.

    Normally no problem but when i want to chance papertray again 20 sec, chance color again 20sec..

    I use windows 7 32 bits

    Hi Ecoboost182,


    May i know what printer you are using? And also which F-Secure software / version you are using?


    If you are using F-Secure 2012 and above, please turn off the software temporary to test if the delay persists.

    F-Secure > Computer Security > Task > Turn off.


    In case the delay does not happen after the F-Secure has been turned off, please re-enable the software and disable the component one by one in order to pinpoint which is the component that is causing the issue.


    Components that might be affected are (FSIS2013):


    -Virus and Spyware Scanning


    -Firewall (Advanced network protection)


    Best regards,


  • Hi Gary,


    We use a Minolta bizhub C25 as printer .

    The version of the software is Intersecurity 2012  9.13 build 105


    After shutting down the software in the systemtray the printer reaction is still slow.

    Only after deinstallation of the software everything works fine again.


    The program does something underwater when being installeted.
