I recently reinstalled my computer, so everything is brand spankin' new here. (Except hardware ofc...). I installed version 9.10.
F-Secure seems to be unable to function properly for some reason I cannot really understand. When I open the F-Secure window, I get the status message "Your computer is not protected. Malfunction. Please restart your computer".
A restart makes no difference. This just happens again.
The logfile (LogFile.log) tells me that "The integrity of virus definition database update 2011-07-24_05 has been successfully verified", but then gives me a couple of inputs that say "No scanner engines loaded and enabled. Virus protection is disabled."
If I go to "Settings" > "Other settings" > Automatic updates, I see under "Details" that there is nothing specificed in "Policy manager" and "policy manager proxy". The only thing that "Policy manager" says is"http://". I don't know if this is default or at all relevant, but if I knew what was relevant for this problem I would probably have a better chance of fixing the problem...
Other details are that I am using a stand-alone communication, and I've made sure that on "connection" I have "No HTTP Proxy" selected. I will mention that this was set as "Use my browser's HTTP proxy" before, but as my browser doesn't use a proxy it should make no difference. (Network status also states "connected".
Other details about my computer:
Windows 7 64-bit
Uses a local area network connection for internet. (Ie. no modem).
Could you please open a support ticket and attach a FSDIAG from your system?
Thank you in advance.
We are aware of the problem and are currently investigating it. It seems to affect only a limited amount of users.
If it's possible could you take an FSDIAG.tar.gz diagnostics file from your computer, open a support ticket to us and attach the diagnostics file there?

I will let you know once I have more details available regarding this problem.
I have the same problem. The F Secure icon has the cross on it and when I hover over it it says malfunction, but when I open the programme it says my computer is protected and I can occasionally do scans and updates.
I cant use my Support Tool however, it says I need to insert a disc into the computer but its supposed to save the file onto my desktop. Its a bit strange.
I'm afraid I can't log in as an administrator so I can't produce the diagnostic file you asked for. Look as though I'll have to wait for your further details, but hope in the meantime my computer security is not at risk. Thanks
Experiencing same problem,which started yesterday. Coincedentally, windows defender activated itself and there are three recent downloads in F-Secure which do not install.
