F-Secure Version ?

How to find out which version of F-Secure Antivirus (Whether 2013 or 2014) is installed on my Windows 7 ?

 

F-Secure About (Tray icon) shows this information.

Re: F-Secure Version ?

@AS: What you have there is Launch pad version. Launch pad is a common provisioning and licensing framework that both Anti-Virus and Internet Security (= Computer Security and Online Safety) are deployed on top of. The same version of Launch pad is used by both Anti-Virus and Internet Security products. 1.89.201 is the latest release.

 

You can also open the Anti-Virus user interface and select "About" from the menu to see the version of Anti-Virus component.

Re: F-Secure Version ?

I have investigated the problem. Beta program had an experimental feature enabled where launch pad version is preserved when migrating to an older version (prevent downgrade). This unintentionally also took effect when migrating from beta to retail. The feature will be disabled in next beta release.

 

Only users who migrated from beta to retail might be affected, depending on how they performend the migration.

 

So in this case the imaging program did not cause any problems. Thanks to Blackcat for helping with the investigation.

I am not at Home, so if I remember;

 

Tray icon>left-click>Computer Security and then the version number should be at the top of the main Window.

Re: F-Secure Version ?

1.89.201 is the latest release and the 2014 version.

@ Blackcat : Thanks for the reply.


This is the screenshot for Tray icon>About.


I mean that should it not display the "F-Secure 2013" or "F-Secure 2014" anywhere on its interface or in 'About' dialog box.

@ Ville Smiley Happy I also think so.

But it would be great if it was mentioned somewhere explicitly.

Screenshot?

 

Most AVs give version in about box but F-Secure?

 

The version is on its interface but you have to LEFT-click on the tray icon and go into the Computer Security main Window.

 

I will post a screenshot in a few hours when I return Home.

 

And a warm welcome to this Forum Smiley Happy

Re: F-Secure Version ?

I've dropped my ISP version and just installed the latest version from F-Secure, and I have the same version number as you in the about window.

This is what my Computer Security window shows:

Re: F-Secure Version ?

1. The About window as stated above gives just the build number.

 

2. The first and second image show that a right-click on the tray icon on the "View my subscriptions" gives the Version number both in subscriptions and installation.

 

3. Left-click on the tray icon>Computer Security brings up the main Window which NikK has shown above.

 

Overall F-Secure could make things simpler and more logical.Capture.GIFCapture 2 .GIF

Thank you all for your replies.

Here are the screenshots from my side.

I think mine is different because its a trial (a recent 1 year promotional giveaway).

I just wanted to be sure that i have a Latest F-Secure Technology (because it's not mentioned anywhere whether its 2013 or 2014)

but i believe that i have a latest version as per tray icon<about  which is "F-Secure 1.89 build 201"

Anyways it is worth mentioning here that F-Secure is extremely fast and very light on computer resources.Smiley Happy
