Anti-virus malfunction


Anti-virus malfunction

I started getting malfunctions a week ago, I kinda didn't bother about it, but I did today, and I rebooted as it wanted me to, didn't help, even shut my computer down and started it again, didn't help. So I tried to uninstall, and supposedly it went fine, but when I went to install it again, it said the previous installation required a reboot still. I restarted it, and it kept giving me that message, I tried the uninstall tool on this forum and then restart but it keeps giving me this message, I restored my computer to yesterday, not that it fixed anything, but it keeps giving me random pop ups for a restart, but on the list with "Applications:" it's empty, maybe my windows is broken and doesn't actually restart proberly? Idk I googled on the issue I have but nothing, so I hope you guys can help me.


Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit


Re: Anti-virus malfunction

Just to clarify, is it F-Secure that keeps prompting for a restart?  Would it be possible to post a screenshot of the pop up?


Someone more technical then me might have further advice, but my initial suggestion would be to try the F-Secure Uninstallation Tool in Safe Mode, and see if that removes the previous installation fully.  If you have trouble getting into Safe Mode, this might help:

Hello Techowl,


Could you confirm the exact version and product your trying to reinstall?

Could you also provide a screenshot of the pop-up you see?

Best Regards
