  • Depending on the virus that you cleansed or part of the system that has been washed clean that you need to restart your system to get a fresh start. image

    Hi,

     

    this could help you:

    More specifically: http://www.f-secure.com/en/web/home_global/support/article/kba/2237

     

    There are times when especially in the temporary internet cache, files are locked by another process in windows. Therefore a reboot is needed to delete/clean the file.

    Hi Nmouse,

    your feedback is welcome. You might want to add the feature request in our "Idea Exchange" section: http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Idea-Exchange/idb-p/Idea_Exchange

    Although not the same, a tool like Ccleaner could help you and other users to quickly clear the Windows caches of various programs.

    Kind regards

    Hi again

     

    No.. CCleaner is only to clean cache, and it does NOT erase alle the cache folders...

    Have seen it some times.

     

    Try it for yourselv.not all files is gone, and i regend it shoud !

     

    I have sugested this in beta.f-se... but they said that FS is not a clean-up tools.. but it coud be a great thing to have, i think.

     

    Regards..
