I really wonder how to uninstall f-secure antivirus for mac compeletely. I deleted it weeks ago, i forgot which way i used to delete it. But today when i was tring to install norton secuirty, it says f-secure detected, uninstall it before install norton internet security. But when i checked in my mac, f secure doesn't exsit anymore. And i also tried the tool that posted on this community, it says uninstall succesfully, but the problem is still there. I think there are probably some files that i did not delete comepeltely. I wonder how can i REALLY UNINTALL IT COMPELETELY from my mac. i did try to restart but it seems doesn't really work. Can some one tell me an more advanced way to delete all of the files related to f secure antivirus for mac. Thank you so much.Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 10.57.28 PM.png

    Hi Simon11909,


    You can check the steps given in this link for uninstalling the Mac Protection program manually via Terminal by issuing the command.

  • Have tried but terminal will not allow passwrd have used removal tool and I have tried all but cannot get it to go so I can install Norton what can I do ???

    As if there is something left on the Mac then I need to erase it.

    Hi @Frasman and @Simon11909,


    If the issue still persists even after following the link, I would recommend opening a support ticket so that our support team can help troubleshoot further.

  • Have used link but the terminal keeps being stoped as no tech seems to be there. This what I am asking.

    Have run uninstall again but when I try to install Norton it says F-Secure is still on machine have even run the terminal script why is there still something on my machine I am using a Mac 

  • Have tried the uninstaller again have run script in terminal and I have tried all sugestions but STILL unable to get Norton to install as its says that F-secure is still on my mac.

    How the hell do I get rid of this when I went to chat with an advisor I kept being cut of by a tech so what do we have to do to get this off the machine.

    My biggest mistake was installing it!!!!
