F-Secure causing FTTC speed drop?
In this case we need to determine the component that is causing the issue. Can you please disable the 4 components below, one by one and try again to test the speed.
First, please open up Launch Pad > Computer Security > Settings.
In Computer section, please go to:
i) Virus & spyware scanning. Uncheck the "Turn on real-time scanning"
ii) DeepGuard. Uncheck the "Turn on DeepGuard".
In Internet section, please go to:
i) Firewall. Uncheck the "Turn on firewall".
ii) Application control. Uncheck the "Turn on application control".
Please let us know by disabling which component can make it work correctly?
Sorry, but I think we'll have to close this one as unsolved. It wasn't my installation, but a friend's, and he's now moved on to another product. I can ask if he'd mind retesting FS with your suggestions, but he may not want the hassle of uninstalling / reinstalling again.
Thanks for your response, though. It's something I will bear in mind if this comes up again.
My friend is a web designer and an IT support technician. He is testing other AV products for a client, but once he has finished that, and has some free time, he has said that he will retest F-Secure, with a clean VM, following Fendy's suggestions. I will report back here as soon as I hear anything further.1 1Like
