Re: Uninstalling F-Secure Mac AntiVirus no such directory found?

Could you try the command at the end of this article:

http://community.f-secure.com/t5/Security-for-PC/How-can-I-uninstall-the-security/ta-p/15560

 

"In case the uninstallation script does not work, you can uninstall the program manually by opening a Terminal.app and issuing the following command: 'sudo /usr/local/f-secure/bin/uninstall_MacProtection’."

 

Please post the result if the problem persist.

 



Best Regards

-Ben
