F-secure is acting abnormal
For the last couple of days, I am finding that F-secure has been bogging down my PC and giving me grief. I first noticed it when I downloaded a few patches for The witcher. After downloading these patches, F-secure would make the folder, where I had downloaded these patches in, unresponsive. It would take up half of my CPU(50%) and computer would get laggy. My solution was to disconnect from the internet and shut off F-secure. Everything went back to normal. After I installed the patches I turned F-secure back on. That's when I discovered I could no longer access the internet. I had a connection but I couldn't get firfox to run or windowslive or any other app for that matter. I reset my PC and everything was back as it should. Anyway, I start up the witcher and nothing happens. Hmmm. I look in task manager and find that the exe. Is running. I attempt to close it and nothing happens. So I restart my PC and and again disconnect from the internet and shut down f-secure. I run witcher and it runs. Yesterday I installed Battle for middle earth and when I attempt to play it, again it won't run. I don't get a warning or a permission from F-secure asking if its OK to run this prog. To fix this problem I went int F-secure settings/virus and spyware scanner and changed the option from always ask me, to, if unclear, ask me. I changed deep guard to the same and now BFME runs fine, like it should. I haven't had to change anything in fissure since i installed it. I almost always got a permission when I ran a program for the first time but for the last few days it doesn't even ask if the newly installed programs are allowed internet access. I run Windowsxp service pack 3 on a p4 3.0 with 4gigs 3200ram. I am hoping that there is a simple solution because I use my pc at least 4 hours per day. Any thoughts or suggestions would be very appreciative.
