Can't turn F Secure Off

There is no "unload" button anywhere and nothing else to turn it off.It doesn't let me open some files i know are safe and it is getting quite annoying.I'm using F-secure for workstations.

Dear Nick93,

 

If you are using Anti-Virus for Workstation, you will need to right click on the blue F-secure tray icon and select "unload" but it must be allowed in PMS in FSMA-section "allow unloading for everyone".

 

However, if you know the file you are opening is safe, you can actually exclude the file from the real-time scanning on PMS.

 

Please feel free to contact us again should you need further assistance.

Hi Nick93,

 

My apology for the shortforms, PMS is Policy Manager Server and FSMA is F-Secure Management Agent.

 

If you are working in a company eviroment, kindly contact your Network Administrator for assistance. If you are the Network Administrator, please follow the steps below to exclude the safe file:

 

- Login to Policy Manager Console and Click View and choose advance view.

- Under Policy, Click F-Secure Anti-Virus > Settings > Settings For Real-Time Protection > Scanning Options > File Scanning > Inclusions and Exclusions > Excluded Objects

- Under Excluded Objects, click Add and you can add the file name which you want to exclude.

Note: Tick Disallow user changes to make sure it works.

 

Please feel free to contact us again should you need further assistance.

Thanks.

Hi Nick93,

 

We would like to inform that Anti-Virus for Workstation is a Coporate product and not for home users. However, we would like to check the product version which is installed, kindly right click on the F-Secure small icon on task bar and choose About. The first line will be the product name and version. Please update us with this info.

Thanks.
