Hi Roc,

May I know which version of F-Secure program you have?
- Right click the F-Secure icon in the Taskbar > About...

 

You may try this:

1. Make sure that your system clock is set to current date and time.
2. Refer to this KB article.

Thanks.

You installed F-Secure product recently?

 

If yes, it has to download whole database of viruses what exists. So it may take huge time to download whole lists.

 

Anyway, go to "common settings" of launch pad(if you use AV or IS 2012 you'll see it), under "Downloads" menu press "check now", and look belove it what's going on about downloads.
