Mac Anti Virus update?


I've started getting a popup to install an update for Mac Anti Virus - could someone confirm that this is a real push? 

Two differences that are in this 'new' installer but not in the installer available from F-Secure's site:

1) The installer window has green banner text under the installation steps

2) The pop up installer license terms have no date


I've tried to chat with support, and been disconnected each time after a 10 minute wait

    Same here - F-Secure appears to want to run an update on my Mac but when I do it (after entering my laptop's admin password - d'oh!) it fails with an odd error - something about not being able to find the data?


    My details:

    F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac (B11500.C110)

    OS X 10.7.5 (11G63)

    Same here.

    Here is the box. It's very persistent, keeps popping up.

    I am also get this persistent message with the same inability to install telling me it can't find the data to install.  I checked my subscription date and it's not due to expire until October this year. What's going on F-Secure?

    Same problem.. The message is appearing every now and then. But no chance to update. No need for the product update yet.

    I started getting the same pop-up as of yesterday.  When I do the Exclamation Mark that the data couldn't be found....etc., I immediately thought Virus/Trojan scam!  I ran a scan to make sure I didn't fall victim of an intruder...and everything was I just hit Remind Later..then it comes back an hour later.  This is suspicious; however, what I find even more troubling is no response from F-Secure.  I will cancel my subscription and remove the program if it persists.

    I struggled with the problems for several days. I had installed the F-Secure directy from in 2012. My Internet connection provider sells the same program under it's own brand, so I installed it, after which the problems appeared. Finally I found the reason: F-secure was installed in 2012 in the folder "F-secure" in my Mac's Library section. The internet provider's F-secure files were installed in the Mac's Application section. After removing the files from the Library section the problem was solved.
