Next time not F-secure


Bought licens for 5 computers yesterday. After three houers I have succeded to install F-secure on 1. 

Actually I have not time to spend on this.

For one of the computurs I have installed AVAST instead.

The problems where of many (alla) kinds. From diffulties to menaeuver on F-secure web site. To installations abortions. And endless boots.

And support from F-Secure is absent. They do not not leave a phonenumber!

You have to mail them. And then they may answer SOMETIME. Bu I need support TODAY.

I have had f-secure for many years, but now is my patience has come to an end.


F-secure  makes my  angry.

    Hi Jojo3,


    I am sorry to hear that you are having issues with your F-Secure installation.

    Thank you Laksh for yor kind answer.

    At last I succeded to install F-secure on three out of four computors.

    I suggest that F-secure work with their installationsprocces to make it easy.  And give the user a good info of how it shuld be done.

    (By the way I not beginner with computors. Installed programs of different sort since 1991).


    The different sort of problem that occured were as I mentione;  MANY.

    Among others.

    Could not find phonenumber to the support, only mail. Think they hide it to avoid work.


    The code I got could I not write for renewal this year (Have had F-secure 5 years). Not valid.

    Hard to find what to do att that  point.

    Hard to find a link on F-secure web site from where you must order your installation file.

    The installation file was to be sent by mail.

    Had 2 computors without e-mail. How to do there. No info, no help from F-secure on that point (or any other).

    Then the usual conflicts problems. But the installationprogram did not mentione which program it had a conflicty with. Had to guess.

    Then it had a conflict with a program with a name I did not recognize. Perhaps a leftover file.

    On one computor it could not copy a dll file, without giving options. I there installed Avast (free and easy in four minutes!).

    But as I said take a day and you may succed. I now lots of experience of how F-secure want you to install AND how F-secure could make it easier for the user to do it. I have been educated against my will.  And is is like biking. If you know  it it is easy, if you don´t you will have a painstaiking och long time before you. Good luck.
