    Hi grahamdavid57,


    I saw your PM message. However, I have reset your code now to use it on your Windows 10. Could you please retry the activation using your code in Booster?

  • I have the F-Secure booster too, and it gives me the same problem. I bought it earlier this year. It worked well until a few months later it started saying that I need to enter the activation code. I used the same code from when I first activated the product. It gave me a message saying I have surpassed the maximum number of computers for F-Secure Booster. But this is the only computer I have ever installed it on. I tried uninstalling and redownloading it. That did not make any difference. I obviously do not want to rebuy the product just to make it work again. The reciept says it should work for a year. What do I need to do to make the F-Secure Booster work properly again?

    Hi Mapleclove,


    Was Booster reinstalled recently on your same computer? Could you please send me a private message with your license information so that I can check it further?


    Thank you, Lakesh! Thanks for resetting my activation code. I re-entered it, and my F-secure booster is finally working again. I am glad that I can go back to boasting to my comrades about how effective the booster is. As long as the software does not give me the same problem too frequently, please know that I enjoy its overall performance and its user-friendly interface.

    The security on this software is appalling. I have paid my hard earned money buying BOOSTER, i installed it, but i re-installed my Windows 10 due to another issue and now BOOSTER tells me my activation key is invalid as it's already registered on another PC. Appalling. No the wonder people pirate software when legitimate customers get messed around .....

    And by the way, these 'forums' are a disgrace. Most of the posts and replies are from 2015. F- Secure you need to need to be more user friendly, because i don't think these forums are real ....
