Everytime I go into google chrome and onto every programme the infernal F internet security keeps popping up and I spend more time clicking cancel than looking at sites. How on earth do I stop this annoying nuisence of a pop-up?
In order to help you, could you provide more details on the pop-up? As mentioned by Simon, a screenshot could be very helpful in understanding the problem you are facing.
Which F-Secure product are you currently using?
In case you need more help than that:
1. It's the Print Screen button, usually "prt sc" in short. If you have a laptop it might also require you to press the Fn (function key) or similar. Pressing Print Screen saves an image to the clipboard.
Pressing the Alt key + Print screen will take an image only of the active window and not the entire screen.
2. Start the Windows Paint program(mspaint.exe) and press Ctrl+V to paste the image from the clipboard. If you want you can now edit/cut/hide parts of the screenshot to protect any private sensitive information.
3. Save the image to disk.
4. Now you can follow Simon's advice
Just because picture already are visible:
- Current pop-up is DeepGuard prompt about launch of "suspicious/malicious" application, which already previously was blocked (or automatically; or by user-choice):
It's mean - for stop that:
You need to go on F-Secure Computer Security UI - Tools - Application Permissions (DeepGuard Storage) and remove/allow current application on the list;
Name of application can be related with PUP/Toolbar/Search-engine and can be on system by adware;
How I can to understand - related with Conduit.
If you don't need or want that search-engine (which probably close to malicious/suspicious/unwanted) - it's mean you not need to do something with DeepGuard storage (and allowed part of that application);
If you did not install that search-engine or other related points (like toolbar/BHO/add-on/plug-in) by your "feels" - need to clean your system from that "payload";
But for any actions about clean - need to certainly know... which situation you have (you can to check list of plugins/toolbars/addons/search-engines or maybe it's can be on Control Panel of Windows) for understanding - what certainly "potentially unwanted program here" or maybe here "malicious" sample.
