Just downloaded F-Secure AV trial; the install removed MBAM as "conflicting software"
Question: most of AVs (if not all) will have an icon in the taskbar (right lower corner) through whic you can open the setings for your AV; f-Secure icon will just send me to F-Secure website; Is there any way to have an icon in the taskbar which will open F-Secure setings?
And why do I need several places on which, if I click i go straight to f -secure website ( taskbar icon, that dubleicon and "?")
We have replaced the F-Secure Taskbar icon since 2012 version. You just need to apply a single left click on the icon to open the Launch pad.
Kindly refer our KB article for What is Launch pad?
Hope this helps.
I have just installed F-Secure for the first time and for this reason alone I will not be purchasing a license.
Uninstalling it right away, this has got to be one of the worst interfaces I have seen
Thank you for provide us with your valuable feedback. We have had mix feedbacks on the new GUI (Launchpad); Some like it, some doesn't.
The F-Secure Launchpad is part of the implementation in F-Secure Service Enabler Applications For Windows which works for better performance and end-user experience.
This is un unfortunate design, in my opinion; if I run a fullscreen application, I have to close it (1 click) , open F-Secure from screen shortcut (2-nd click) and click on Launchpad /Antivirus (3-rd click); with any other antivirus is enough 1 click on tray icon.
And again, why you have so many places to access F-secure website /buy? one place in on tray icon, another is on launchpad, the third one is on GUI ,"?" (which is supposed to be "Help")???
Rest assured that if a customer is satisfied ,he/she can find the way back to F-secure website.
For the time being I will search for something else,with a conventional GUI.
Thanks for your assistance!
F-Secure got 5.5 from 6 in AV Test for "Usability" which has nothing to do with being "one of the easiest to use"
I agree with you,though,that F-Secure has a very simple interface and is easy to navigate.
The issue here is that F-Secure has an awkward way to open the interface. no more, no less.
