F-Secure failing to launch - no warning, no status

I have just encountered a nasty little problem.

 

When I tried to open Control panel, one option only opened a web page to sell me the product (again?)

The computer security tab brought up a window saying it was trying to START; but failed and never did so.

 

  • No warning, but found the **bleep** thing inactive - I'm very annoyed.
  • Can't right click to scan a file, can't open f-secure, can't do a scan.
  • The control panel just does not function as intended.

Re-boot, allowed time for self correction, it did nothing.

Unable to open the prpgram from menu or the file itself.

At no poinbt could I scan or open the program interface itself.

Checked the download updates, a failed file is in there, obviously it crashes the standard installation.

 

 

My Solution - so far, in case it happens to YOU too

  • remove f-secure,
  • re-boot from CD, check PC for malware (took a whole night and there was nothing)
  • re-install F-secure
  • Hope the **bleeping** thing does not crash again and contact support for an explanation.

 

 

 

Update - no word from Tech Support, just the sound of wind across the open plain...................

Comments

  • UPDATE:

     

    I've at last had a reply from some moron on Tech helpdesk who has paraphrased the 'Get rid of the customer quick' default script to me.

     

    Having not read the e-mail at all, he/she/it informed me to check for malware and re-install the program.

     

    EXACTLY what I'd said I had done in the aforementioned e-mail

     

    No mention of why the fault occurred or may actual Question:

     

    HOW WILL I KNOW THE PROGRAM IS STILL FUNCTIONING WITHOUT HAVING TO CHECK EVERY 10 MINUTES.

     

    Jeezus wept!!!!!

     

     

    Did I mention I am a software reviewer and a Scientist, No?

    Maybe that's why customers are treated as idiots.
