    Hard to say, but something obviously isn't right. Do you have any other antivirus software on the machine, or did you have immediately prior to installing F-Secure? I'm wondering if something might be conflicting?

    I have windows defender and IObit Malware Fighter, could they be causing the problem?

    I believe Windows Defender should have been automatically disabled when FS was installed. I would suggest disabling it now, and see if that solves your issue. I've never heard of the other one, so I've no idea on that, sorry, but generally, you shouldn't have more that one 'real time' scanner active, as they can cause conflicts, one exception being Malwarebytes, which is certified as compatible.
  • IObit Malware Fighter isn't good by the way,you can deinstall it.

    Zorro, would you mind marking the post which helped most as the solution?  With no disrespect to Johannes, he was only asking if the problem was solved.  :)

  • Done.
