Anti-Virus firewall daemon stopped responding
We have recently upgraded from Client Security 12.00 to 13.00 on a number of workstations, and on a nightly basis we receive the following error message from many of them:
The module F-Secure Anti-Virus Firewall Daemon monitored by F-Secure Management Agent has stopped responding or was terminated. An attempt to restart it will be made later. If you see this message frequently, contact the system administrator or reinstall F-Secure products.
I looked at this previous thread which suggested needing OS updates to support a more recent signing algorithm: https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business/Module-Crash-Detected-Restarting/td-p/90894
However in our case this error is also occurring on fully patched versions of Windows 10. What could the problem be?
