How to switch of/disable html/web scanner

Recently, I have upgraded my f-secure antivirus software from version 8 to IS 2012. Since then all my files downloaded using jdownloader are corrupted. This is most visible while downloading archive files. Any archive file will produce ‘unexpected end of archive error’ during unpacking. I have downloaded number of [the same] files on two machines; one with f-secure IS 2012 and second with version 8.
All files downloaded on the computer running IS 2012 were corrupted.
All files downloaded on the machine running old version of f-secure, were OK.
I have reported this problem to f-secure, but so far I didn’t get any intelligent resolution.

It was suggested by jDownloader team, that I should add java.exe/javaw.exe into the trusted list of IS 2012, and for these two running processes you'll have to add correct rules to switch of/disable html/web scanner.

First bit was easy, but I am not sure how to to switch of/disable html/web scanner.

Thank you.


When I’ve said ‘upgraded’, actually I’ve uninstalled old version (F-Secure Client Security 8.01), using F-Secure uninstall tool and then installed IS 2012.

    upgrading from Version 8 (what product?) to FSIS2012 is not supported. Old drivers may still be active now interfereing with the new technology of IS2012.


    Please run the ui-tool from and after the system rebooted check that the F-Secure folder is really gone!!!

    Then reinstall IS2012 and try to reproduce the problem.


    Please report back.


    Best Regards


  • Thanks, but when I’ve said ‘upgraded’, actually I’ve uninstalled old version (F-Secure Client Security 8.01), using F-Secure uninstall tool and then installed IS 2012. I am 100% sure that nothing was left from the old version, when I've installed the new one.

    Kind Regards

    because it is very important to understand WHY/Where the conflict come from I recommend that you firts create a diagnosis file and submit that to support. Please post the received SR-ID here for reference.

    After that you might want to try disabling the module and reboot.
  • After exchanging several emails with f-secure customer support and trying to follow silly to no end instructions, finally I have found perfect solution. I have ditched f-secure internet security 2012 and bought avg internet security 2012 instead, and EVERYTHING is OK.

    Unfortunately I have found f-secure customer service very unprofessional and basically useless – in short total waste of time..

     So, if you want to use jdownloader stay away from f-secure.
