F Secure Pop ups

My F Secure is set to process unwanted files automatically but still "Pops up" to say it is doing something which means I have to acknowledge it rather than it process the files in the background.  I can't see a setting to change this. It happens so frequently I'm thinking of changing. Could anyone help please? I run W10 on an Acer Aspire. Many thanks!

    hello Simon,

     

    many thanks for your suggestion, I ran the free version of Malwarebytes and since then, touchwood, the pop ups have stopped - was it simply therer were items F Secure could not remove that MB could?? Many thanks for your very helpful advice,

    It's possible, as F-Secure isn't designed to remove adware or certain, non-virus, but 'nuisance' type programs. MWB will find these, so it's not a bad idea to have that on board as well, as it will run happily alongside F-Secure.
