FSIS 2012 Update fails with remove "Conflicting security product" and corrupt filesystem
Today I did accept the update request of F-Secure which resulted in an un-protected computer, many files lost, failing applications and the sorts... needless to say I regret the update request.
What Happened so far?
The update downloaded automatically and the installation started but fails during setup. It says "the application could not be installed because some product could not be removed automatically. Remove the following products manually and try again. : Conflicting security product"
It does not tell me WHAT conflicting security product!
I did not have a similar issue when I installed this software at the beginning of this year, prior this update.
Assuming it was in conflict with itself, I rebooted the PC, but at startup, windows detected a huge amount of file system errors, of which some were definitely fsecure related files. Many files were removed during the automatic chkdsk during startup. I do fear multiple applications are affected by this. Forinstance Outlook does not run anymore.
Now I have two system tray Fsecure app icons. One security panel which shows subscription is valid and internet security as not installed, while the other has a blinking red cross which says "Expired" after each product.
The Programs and features controlpanel app strangely does only show F-secure Security Panel , no other F-Secure products are there to de-install.
I am running Windows Vista.
Any help is appreciated.
